Thanks to everyone who sent in information about social run clubs which gather at a local bar or restaurant to go out for a run and then enjoy a beer, margarita or glass of wine. Here's the weekly schedule: 



  • 6 p.m. Natty Greene's Run Club, sponsored by TrySports, hosts a weekly 1-mile walk or a 2.5-mile or 5-mile run followed by a free taco bar and $2 beers. 
  • 6:30 p.m. Raleigh Running Outfitters sponsors a weekly run at Bottle Revolution in Raleigh in preparation for the City of Oaks marathon. 
  • 7 p.m. Big Boss Beer Run Club meets every week for 5k and 4, 5 and 6-mile routes on the Raleigh Greenway. For updates, check out their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/207706669260119/ (They plan to add a Saturday run starting in November.) 



Plus, the Triangle's chapters of the Hash House Harriers meet at different locations and at different times for running and drinking. There are two chapters: Sir Walter's Hash House Harriers (http://swh3.com) and the Carolina Larrikins (www.carolinalarrikins.com.)
