The President’s Running Club

The President’s Running Club members who run at least 10 weeks will receive a special club tech shirt and free entry into the NECC Campus Classic 5K and Fun Run. Photo above: President Glenn leads the pack at the 2015 Campus Classic 5k and Fun Run.

The President’s Running Club is back!

Join other NECC students, faculty, and staff along with President Lane Glenn, and “Run the Campus” this Fall!

The President’s Running Club will meet weekly during the Fall Semester–and EVERYONE is invited to participate. Beginners can join Coach Jeff Bickford in the “Couch to 5K” group (no previous running experience necessary).

Other groups will form for intermediate and expert runners.  We will usually run or walk 1-3 laps around the campus (about 1-3 miles).  For those interested, the club will also have a 4.5 mile trail run around Lake Kenoza, and entry into the Second Annual Newburyport Santa Dash on December 3, 2016.

NEW THIS YEAR:  Can’t make it on Mondays?  Or prefer walking to running?  Get on out there and get fit your way!  And use our online Check In/Check Out to let us know how you did.

Everyone who registers at least 10 walks/runs will receive a special club tech shirt and free entry into the Second Annual Newburyport Santa Dash.

I hope to see you there!

–Lane Glenn
