How did you get your group to grow, and how do you keep your members active?
We keep our group active by doing things like group competitions. We make sure to always be supportive and possitive and answer all questions. We also have Friday night chats. Every Friday night you can find a group of us on chat. Many of us have also met in person for races.
How long have you been a group owner, and what made you want to start your group?
else started our group but three years ago we couldn't figure out who
she was because she hadn't been on in so long so now we share the Group
Owner responsibility. We pass it on to another person in the core group
if we have a lot going on.
What are your top three tips for someone just starting a group?
Set guidelines that keep the group supportive. Make sure everyone feels welcome and do fun Group Competitions.
What do you think your members take away from their group experience while they are a part of your group?
I think they become better runners and they take away the feeling of having friends all over the US.
Anything else you would like to share with us?
The Running Mom group is amazing. I love how positive our group is.
