Attention WaHI and Inwood Runners!


No more trekking down to Central Park for group runs!! Did you know that there is actually a running group right here in Inwood? The Inwood Hill Running Club has been around for many years, ever since a runner was killed in Inwood Hill Park in 2004.
We meet twice a week for group runs on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings all year round. Thursdays we run a hilly 4 mile loop around the hood and Saturdays we run anywhere from 6-9 miles either along the greenway to Riverbank State park and back, or up to Riverdale for a partial trail run or anywhere else when we're in the mood. We've even taken Fairway trips, ending our runs at the 135th Fairway and doing a little grocery shopping!
We average at a pace of around 8-9 min per mile and are always looking for new faces. We meet at the Isham St entrance to Inwood Hill Park, Thursday at 6:30pm and Saturday at 9am. Hope to see you there!

  2. Absolutely! We will be doing the last Van Cortlandt Park Summer series 5K this week so there won't be a regular group run, but definitely look for us on Saturday's and Thursday nights in the future!
