SABATTUS — The Sabattus Rec Running Program is inviting any and all area runners, joggers, and walkers to join in on Wednesday nights for free Group Runs. These leave from in front of Mixer’s in the Sabattus Mini Mall at 6 p.m. each and every Wednesday night, except in severe weather. There is no charge, and there is no pressure to do any more than desired. Groups usually go out for 30-45 minutes, depending on the routes chosen. There are usually two or three pace/distance groups to choose from.

The running program is entering its fifth year, and the Group Run night has been a part of the program for all five years. While the number of participants in the winter sometimes dwindles to single digits, as the weather warms and daylight lasts longer, the groups increase in size and pace/distance options. These run/walks are open to all ages and abilities. Regular participants have experience in a wide variety of race distances and can often offer a wealth of knowledge and advice. Whether people are only interested in getting some exercise in a loose, social setting, or are training for their first race, or are competing in a new distance this year, these group runs can be just what they’re looking for.
