Adult Group Runs

The goal of our adult running club is to build a stronger community of local runners who meet regularly, whether for casual runs or to train for a race. Anyone with an interest in running is welcome, regardless of pace or ability. 


Group Training Runs

We organize group runs for runners 18 and older residing in the Johnston community and Des Moines metro area. The club currently hosts 2-3 group runs per week, typically on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings.

Join JRC Group Runs on Facebook or email for the most current information on group run times and locations.


Master's Racing

 While our adult club is primarily geared toward training for road races (5k, 10k, half and full marathons), we're gauging interest in starting an adult track club to prepare members for USATF master's races, the Iowa Games and other similar meets. Please email us at if you are interested in master's racing or helping start an adult track club.
