Running Group near Rockridge


I’m looking to start running after a few years without doing it. It’s been hard to do it solo so I’m looking for a group / gathering of runners for motivation. Do you know of any good running groups in the area?

There are a couple of groups on the Strava app that are pretty active in oakland.  Oakland Track Club is one and East Bay Strava Runners are a couple.  You can find more via the groups search. 


Lake Merritt Joggers and Striders is amazing. They periodically offer a 5-week “Beginning Running” program to support and encourage people getting into (or back into) running. Fees for their classes and monthly races are on a sliding scale, and proceeds go to local youth running programs. The volunteers who manage the club do a lot to promote running and to build community. Check them out at
