Join the Racine Outdoor Fitness Group!

The Racine Outdoor Fitness Group “OFG” is a diverse group of community minded people and local running clubs who want to live healthier lifestyles, be held accountable by their peers and enjoy life’s craziness in the process. We are young, we are old, some of us walk, some of us run slow, some run super fast. but we all have one thing in common… we gather to enjoy the camaraderie and help motivate those that surround us.


We all have different goals… we come together for many reasons that bind relationships. We participate in community events that help others. That’s what we do, and that’s what we are about!




We will be meeting at Reefpoint Marina on Racine’s Lakefront. Most group runs are led by one of our staff members or program coaches according to availability. Maps and directions are always provided to runners that need them.

Morning Runs, Sunrises and a healthy start to your day!


Racine Outdoor Fitness Group hosts FREE group runs open to all pace levels.  Join us for a consistent weekly running program for either a 5K or 10K group run along the Lake Michigan shoreline. There is usually more than one person running 3 miles or less, and new runners can easily turn around with them or at any point.    Nothing beats group motivation and a Lake Michigan sunrise!

Your safety is very important to us. There is a great deal of consideration in deciding to cancel group runs.  We will cancel runs if any of the below conditions occur or are expected to occur at the time of the group run:

  • Heat index (temperature + humidity) becomes unsafe: 95 degrees or above
  • Thunderstorm – lightning is present
  • Tornados and/or high winds
  • Any other dangerous weather conditions such as hail or poor visibility



Please note that it is ultimately you who decides to participate in group run functions and events – be sure you feel safe and comfortable with the weather conditions before participating. We do have the right to modify or change workouts depending on the weather conditions. We will not cancel if it is simply raining or snowing – you never know what it will be like on race day!  We use as our resource when making decisions regarding group run cancellations.

We will utilize an app called ABS, aka “Athlete Buddy System” to keep track of your efforts. Please download the up to become familiar with the operation of the same. If you do not have a “Smart Phone”, please let us know.
