Back in the day, we were excited to be hosting 1-2 meetups at some of our favorite races with a handful of friends. Now we are getting requests months in advance on if there will be one, who is hosting, and how come there isn’t one at X race? These are good problems to have and it means that what we have created as a community, means something.

Let’s get right to what appears to be our “busy season” for events. Over the next 3 weekends, there will be 7 meetups (#RnRLA would have been 8, but plans didn’t come together in time).

What’s a Social Meetup?

If you have never been to a meetup, or have no idea what happens at these things, it goes down a little something like this:

  • Everyone gathers at a location give or take 5-minutes.
  • The host says something, blah blah, hashtag #werunsocial.
  • If there are giveaways, that happens.
  • If there are snacks/drinks, that happens too.
  • More chatting, mostly about running. Selfies with new friends (and old).
  • Everyone gathers for a photo.
  • People stay, people go, but a good time is had by most.

It’s really that simple. There are not drinks, or snacks, or giveaways at all the meetups, but usually it’s a safe bet that the majority of the people have a good time. Typically there may be some awkward introductions, or people may be shy in introducing themselves, but we are all runners, we are all people, and we are all about the community. If you are around at any of these events (or upcoming ones), please come by. Feel free to bring a friend, too. Everyone is welcome – even if you have no idea what #werunsocial is (and BTW, it’s a running crew made up of runners that love social media – so that’s you!).

Upcoming Meetups: RnR San Antonio, CIM, Dallas Marathon, Walt Disney World Marathon, Miami Marathon

(Almost) 100k

The #werunsocial hashtag is about to reach an amazing milestone on Instagram. At the time of this post, we the hashtag just surpassed 95,000 tags. Is the next three weekends what pushes it over the limit? Either way, the community is growing and it’s being driven by YOU, the runners.
