Weekly Club Group Runs

Rise & Shine

Tuesday mornings at 5:30AM

Mid September - Mid June

Come Rise & Shine with the Cheyenne Running Club for a fantastic start to your Tuesday! This is a weekly event great for all skill and experience levels. So come join us to jog, run, run/walk, or even skip any distance you feel like. We change up our route each week to cruise through different parts of the surrounding areas, plus there are many food / coffee options for that well earned post run treat. As an added bonus, portions of the year we will also provide runners the chance to welcome the sun and bask in the splendor of a Wyoming sun rise!

Shoes Cruise to Booze

Thursday evenings

All Year


Thursday nights should be a celebration, as we are almost through the traditional work week. So why not have some fun with a free Cheyenne Running Club run, then socialize after over nice pint of a frosty beverage. This weekly event will move locations each week, to mix up the terrain and booze options. Though please note, post run drinks are optional.

As always, our runs are good for everyone at all pace, skill, distance, and experience levels. These runs are just about getting together with other runners to enjoy the social aspect of our sport.


Coffee Run

Saturday mornings

Mid September - Mid June

Start the week off with a little run, then indulge in some fun socializing with your fellow runners over a cup joe. Of course, any coffee or treats are purely optional. Locations vary by week, to keep things fresh. 'Cause we all know there is nothing worse than old coffee.

This is a weekly event great for all skill and experience levels. So come join us to jog, run, run/walk, or even skip any distance you feel like.

Trail Run

Weekend mornings

All Year

Join us for an adventure in the dirt, where we will rotate locations each week between Curt Gowdy, and 3 of our in town trail systems. If you are new to trails, this is a great way to get a taste of the splendor that is trail running. No special equipment or shoes are required, though a good pair of trail shoes can be beneficial in Gowdy.

Trail running is typically slower than road running, often includes more elevation gain, and will definitely include some epic scenery. So come take it slow and see what all the fuss is about!

Nothing is quite as fun as an Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday, well until you do it CRC style! Go for a run along the Greenway anytime during a 12 hour window on Easter, find area marked with a CRC, and get your egg sleuthing on as we have hidden several eggs in the area. Prizes are up for grabs, and this is a free contest for all active club members. Non members may join in the fun too, for a chance to score a club membership.

May the 4th Be With You

May 4th

This one has a tendency to change each year for what we may do. Sometimes it may be a weekend of Star Wars themed running routes, maybe some Yoda Yoga, run in Star Wars attire, or a Tie Fighter Rise & Shine! Stay tuned to see what might be next.

5K to Clean Day

May and September


Come run a 5K with us, then help us clean up our adopted section of the Greater Cheyenne Greenway!! We could not be more excited about this, as we feel this is a great way to give back to the community we enjoy so much.

We will provide trash bags, gloves, water, and of course some tasty treats! Friends and family are welcome to participate, and are welcome to walk or bike the 5k, if running the first bit is not really their thing. The more the merrier!


Global Running Week

Week around Global Running Day

A new, but immensely fun tradition. We will celebrate Global Running Week with several group runs, including 2 special runs on Global Running Day. We will also have daily raffles for club members to win sweet prizes. Then, we will also hold a Poker Run throughout the week to let runners pick up their best hands to go head to head for some insanely cool prizes!! This one is all about celebrating running, and especially celebrating our club members.

Half Marathon Training

June - September

This is what started it all, the inspiration to begin bringing this running community together. It began in support of the Cheyenne Marathon Half, with a training plan and Sunday long runs. We are still at this, but have greatly expanded since. We now offer trails training to support the Great Bison Shuffle Half, cross training Bike Nights, track Speed Work, road long runs on Saturdays, and trail long runs on Sundays. We also enjoy post long run treats, and the occasional presentation from a variety of professionals in health, nutrition, and physical activity fields.

Beers & Soda Cheers Mile

September / October

Began in 2021, the Beers & Soda Cheers Mile is an epic challenge of skill, dedication, and exquisite focus. Well, maybe not so much... This event is all about having some silly fun with running. The goal is to run a mile, within one hour. See, easy! Oh, then you do also need to drink 12 oz of beer or soda before each quarter mile of that mile run. Are you up for this challenge?

This is only one of several events at the annual Oktoberfestathon celebration, bringing together many of the things we love most: bikes, beer, brats, and (b)running!

5K Training

November - December

Winter 5Ks are great, and one of our favorites is the Christmas Classic put on by our great friends at Foot of the Rockies. So let's get prepared together with 2 excellent training programs from RRCA certified running coach Erin Leaf. Whether you are seeking to run your first 5K, or run your best 5K, there's a plan for it!

Run The Lights

December

We will run a leisurely route, carefully planned to showcase many stunning holiday displays along the way. Dress festive, and celebrate this fun CRC family tradition!

Nog Jog

December


What is a Nog Jog, you may ask? Well... it is a fun festive celebration where all you have to do is run 4 laps at 400 m each. Oh, and drink an 8 to 12 oz cup of eggnog before each lap. Easy! Though a fair bit of warning, going slow is likely the best way to do this one.
