Editor's Note: An update to this article June 27 is to check with the organizer referenced at the end of the story regarding the summer location of the runs on Thursdays at 7 p.m. Locations may vary.
With the numerous and variety of trails located in Wildwood, it has become a very popular place for local runners to train or run recreationally.
Wildwood Family YMCA managers started a Running Club a couple of years ago, which provides an opportunity for runners of all abilities to meet for organized group runs and training sessions.
Currently, group runs are scheduled at the following times each week:
- Thursdays, 7 p.m.—meet at Lafayette High School track for organized speed interval training
- Saturdays, 7 a.m.—alternating locations each week, with multiple distance options
Each week, an e-mail is sent to Running Club members, advising of the Wednesday workout plan and Saturday run location. If interested in joining this group, please contact Jen Hine at email@example.com.
