Group Runs

We are more than just a place to shop.
We’re a place where you can meet up with your running buddies, join events and get to know other runners and walkers. If you’re looking to meet some fellow runners please check out these Detroit running groups.

Every Saturday at 8am at the RUNdetroit Store!

We host a free group run every Saturday at 8am year-round, rain or shine. Each week we will have 3, 6 and 10 mile route options. We’ve got several routes that we cycle through so if you show up 3 weeks in a row we’ll do something different each time. Small maps will be handed out before the run. You can also view our running routes here. All paces are welcome — runners, walkers, walk-joggers — come on out!

The run leaves at 8am from our store at 441 W Canfield St. We’ve got lots of free parking options. Please do not park in the Traffic Jam lot. We can stow your keys inside the store and will provide water and NUUN samples for before and after the run.

We do this every Saturday year-round except for a few.

Stone Steppers

The “StoneSteppers” (named after Coach Mike Stone) is a running club with over 35 members most of whom reside in the in the Metropolitan Detroit area. While many team members are very competitive and typically place or win in their age groups, some members are not competition driven and run more for fitness and health. Many new members have lost incredible amounts of weight, others have overcome tremendous personal obstacles and almost all have become much faster and stronger runners. They are always looking for new members that want to improve their running and overall fitness.

Workouts are typically held in Palmer Park, Oak Park and Kensington Metro Park. For more information and workout times and locations please visit their website
