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!

  1. Are you still meeting?

  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!

  3. Do you allow beginners?
