A Fun and Super Social Running Group! 
We create an inviting atmosphere for every person that joins the group, even for people who have never ran before. Our training group is the largest “store based” training group in the state of Minnesota. You’ll connect with up to 150 others runners of varying abilities three times per week from January 16th to June 16th. The size of the group and our attitude towards making each run a fun and social event will likely change the way you feel about running.


Get Expert Coaching
RRCA Certified Coach Tony Stensland will guide you through a 22 week training program. You’ll follow a training plan, gain advice, receive loads of information and get to take advantage of a large, fun group to train with.


Experience Real Benefits 
Our training group delivers benefits that are unique to the Twin Ports region and are different from what you’d get from an online training program. In our group you’ll develop training partners, participate in specialized workouts, and benefit from supported aid stations on our long runs.


Here are some of the other group benefits: 
  • 22 Week Training Plan
  • 10% discount in store during the group session
  • Training Group T shirt
  • 3 Group Runs per week
  • Saturday long runs supported with water and sports drink
  • Individual coaching and advice upon request
  • A fun and encouraging atmosphere
Training group runs start at 5:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, typically from Duluth Running Co. Saturday long group runs start at 8am and then move to a 7am start in April. Saturday run locations will vary.


Cost: $100 through December 3rd (register soon!), $120 through December 31st, $140 starting January 1st


Registration is available in store (no service fee) and online.

We will have an informational meeting on Tuesday, January 9th, 5:30pm, at Duluth Running Co. The meeting will be a great time meet to ask questions and meet other people in the group. The Training Group will begin on January 16th at 5:30pm at Duluth Running Co.

Train With People Like You
  The number one question we get is: “Will there be people like me to train with?” And the answer is: “Yes!”
   Our group attracts over 150 participants. Some people start off not being able to run a half mile in January and by June they are able to run/walk the Bjorklund half marathon. Others in our group start fit and just get faster. Whatever your goal is we will meet you where you are and help you get to where you want to go.
   “I started in the 5k group and then worked my way up to training for my first half marathon and first marathon with the running group. I don’t think I would have been able to do it without the support and guidance from Duluth Running Company.”  -Janelle Fresvik
   “When I joined my first training group I had NO running experience. The support, guidance and encouragement I received lead to me challenging myself in ways that I never thought possible! In addition to falling in love with the sport, I have developed an amazing group of friends and become part of a strong, supportive community.” -John Thoennes
