More About OutRun
OutRun is a bad-ass, challenging run covering 5-8K with cross-training workouts mixed in throughout the run. We start and stop at compelling and historical sites that offer amazing views of the city and provide hidden treasures along the way. Each person pitches in, carrying gear, water, and music (yes, there's music!). If you can run, you can OutRun.
Designed by Roam Fitness founder Graham King - a personal trainer and CrossFit coach - and Chris Geier - a Division 1 soccer player and self-proclaimed urban runner - OutRun will astound you with new trail discoveries, challenge you with a variety of exercises, and provide you a new approach to fitness.
The run’s concept is rooted in the concept of sustained cardiovascular exercise combined with High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Running combined with bouts of cross-training workouts provides a more comprehensive full-body and cardiovascular workout than just running alone or just lifting weights.
Our motto, "Fitness without Boundaries" is best reflected by OutRun through the slogan "My City, My Gym". We embrace this slogan as we traverse varied terrain such as hills, sidewalks, trails, pathways and steps and use park benches, railings, and random structures to workout.
When are OutRuns?
Check our schedule here.
How long do you run?
Weekday mornings we run about 2-4 miles; weekday nights about 3-5; weekends 4-6.
What's the pace?
We stay in a group the entire time and stop every 1/4 to 1/2 mile so pace becomes a non-factor.
What exercises are done at the stops?
We do bodyweight exercises (pushups, pullups, lunges, squats, dips), band exercises (pulls, pushes, rotations), functional strength exercises (lifting logs, sandbags) and any and all new moves! Everything is scalable for all levels.
Should I bring water?
Yes. We will carry your water, but you should definitely bring it.
What's the deal with music?
We have it covered and it's awesome.
