    There’s something rather daunting about the idea of running a marathon that has even the strongest of us shaking in our shoes. It’s in times like those that a group of like-minded individuals working (or running) towards a common goal can help shake that fear aside.

    Here’s our list of running communities in the city that can get even the laziest among us pumped up about running.

    PS: We urge you to take all necessary precautions, maintain social distancing if you are stepping out.
