On Thursday, April 7 we celebrated two years of running together with #WeRunMPLS! We had a fantastic night + are so excited about each person who showed up despite the gloomy, rainy weather. We ran a 3-mile route out of Bauhaus to the river and back and then spent the night sipping beer, eating tacos, enjoying the cake and catching up and getting to know one another.

A few thanks are in order: A HUGE thank you to Brittany Cahoy (brittanycahoyphotography.com), Andy Whisney and Steph Fedor for taking photos of the night. Thanks to Five Watt Coffee for the discounted coffee vouchers! If you haven’t been there yet, you NEED to go. Thanks to Nick for the free reflective! Nick works for a company that makes reflective you can add to your gear to make you safer and more visible at night. Interested? We can connect you! And, of course, thanks to Bauhaus for their hospitality in welcoming our large group to their space on a busy evening.

Scroll down to see photos from the night but first, a few things to look forward to:

  • We mentioned at the party that WeRunMPLS has a new home base partner. We will be announcing who that partner is, and all the fun things coming with that partnership, on April 23 – STAY TUNED. You won’t want to miss this announcement.
  • We’re also introducing monthly long run Saturdays starting in May. The first one will be Saturday, May 7 at 8 a.m. We will have 2 distances: 5 miles and 10 miles. Details for this day will be posted two weeks before the route.
  • Starting Thursday, May 12, we will be running EVERY Thursday at 6:30 p.m. Get ready for lots of WeRunMPLS + more options to fit into your schedule.

Thank you for your support of WeRunMPLS in the first two years. Get excited for what’s next!
