SHE RUNS Grand Rapids Meetups are a free and fun way to connect with others who are registered for the event or thinking about registering but want to find out more! Some Meetups will involve a training run and/or information, and some are just a time to socialize and get to know others in the run/walk community. Most Meetups require registration — especially if there is a waiver to be signed – so we know how many to plan on for that event. Check back often as new Meetups will be added during the next few months.
