Many of us have Googled “run club near me” or “running groups near me” at one point or another hoping to connect socially, share some miles, and find friends who share a passion for running. In fact, that’s exactly how Pace Yourself Run Company was founded – by a group of like-minded individuals, who all love to run, and later developed a bonding friendship through the sport. We would often meet up at local breweries and bottle shops after work or in a grocery store parking lot early on Saturday mornings to get our miles in together. Whether we were training for an upcoming race or simply trying to stay in shape, those meet ups were something we all looked forward to. While sharing the miles, we also shared ideas. And this is where the idea of bringing a running store to our community began. 

Maybe you’ve searched those same terms “run club near me” or “running groups near me” hoping to just get started in your fitness journey. Please know that at Pace Yourself Run Company, YOU ARE WELCOME regardless of your fitness level. If you run a 5 minute mile, or walk a 20 minute mile, we welcome you to join us at one of our locations on run club night.

In Holly Springs, the Pace Yourself Run Club team manages multiple runs from various locations throughout the week, including Tapline Growler, Bombshell Brewery, and our own store location downtown.
