A little HERstory about bRUNch:
Established in 2013, in Denver, Colorado (a food Mecca we might add) by two gal pals who had an affinity for running and for brunch (duh).
bRUNch Running has quickly become one of the top social fitness communities in the country both online and in through hosting live fitness events.
First and foremost, bRUNch Running is not your typical run club. In fact, you probably shouldn't even call us a "club" at all, because we definitely are NOT click-y. We are however, a pretty incredible community of people who enjoy all things: running and fitness, eating (brunch mostly), drinking (responsibly-ish) + of course being social. We are #bRUNchatarians!
We’ve got something for everyone. bRUNch offers intimate sized events (40-60 participants) to larger events (160 participants) and our largest event of 750 participants at our annual bRUNch Run 5k + 10k timed race (Denver, Colo). bRUNch Running's main focus is to motivate individuals to not only get active but stay active, eat well, and be social!
We believe running, fitness, socializing, and of course delicious food and drink are essential for a happy (balanced) life. In a nutshell: bRUNch takes the pain out of “planning brunch”. Imagine that! We do all the heavy lifting by picking a date, a restaurant/ fitness studio, creating running route(s), customize a menu, and we even handle the check at the end. All our participants have to do is purchase a ticket online and just show up for a morning of fun.
We usually meet on a Sunday (sometimes on a Saturday, and even on a Thursday night because brunch is good anytime of day, anytime of week). We go for a run but we use the term "run" loosely, as it's up to the individual as to how fast or slow they'd like to go. We also let them pick a distance (we map out 5k + 10k options so no one gets lost).
After your run is done, everyone "brunches" together at a local hotspot restaurant. Fun fact for ya, all our runs start and finish at the restaurant and are untimed because we like to keep things simple, with the exception of our Annual bRUNch Run 5k + 10k event every October. Save the date: The 6th Annual bRUNch Run is on October 13, 2019.
We don't care how fast or slow you go, how young or old you are (must be 21+ to drink adult beverages of course), male or female, n if you have four-legs (dog-friendly) or get around in a stroller (kid-friendly). The only thing we care about is that YOU like, scratch that, LOVE brunch as much as we do!
