To promote running as part of a healthy lifestyle, BBay Running offers free weekly group runs open to all levels and abilities of runners. BBay Ambassadors guide each pace group. BBay Pub Runs are every Thursday evening. We leave BBay (1431 N State St) at 6:15 pm except for the 3rd Thursday of each month when our run starts at a local trail head. We run distances of 5-10km (3-6 miles). No need to join us at the post-run pub or brewery if you do not have time or that is not your thing, but come for the run.

BBay Pub Runs are fun, healthy outings with diverse groups of runners. Nearly each BBay Pub Run is different. Runners enjoy one of our many routes and complete our run at a different local pub or brewery. Often, a BBay partner will join us to offer shoes or other products to try on your run.

Trinity of BBay Pub Runs:

Upon completing our run, you will have earned your beer at one of these great local pubs, breweries or dive bars (yes, we go to the dark side sometimes).
