Group Runs

Since TARC was formed in 1994, the goal has always been simple: bring people together to run on trails. Group runs have been a key component of achieving that goal through the years. At times that has meant organized group runs, while in more recent years it has taken the form of individuals taking the lead and organizing meet-ups at local trailheads, as well as the whole pack coming together at TARC Trail Series events. In early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic brought all in-person TARC-sponsored events to a halt as the governor’s orders prohibited gatherings. With the restrictions now lifted in 2021, it’s time to bring the Trail Animals back together — as well as welcome new Animals to the pack! We’re returning to our roots, and the TARC Outreach Group is reviving monthly group runs at the Blue Hills Reservation. We still embody the same “No Animal Left Behind” philosophy that the club has embraced since its founding, and we welcome you to join us. It’s free; it’s fun; and you’ll make some good friends along the way.

If you’ve ever been curious about running trails but didn’t know where to start, come and let us show you the way. If you’re a seasoned trail veteran simply looking to run with others, we’re here for you, too. All are welcome!
