Move with  Us

StartLine Runners is a NYC-based community group of women active lifestyle seekers and aficionados.  Our aim is to provide motivation, a support network and a healthy social outlet for women runners and walkers at all levels in order to achieve and maintain a more healthy and active life! 

Weekly group runs & walks are led by experienced Coach, Captains and Lead Pacers.  Our Coach is certified since 2015 by the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). Our Captains and Lead Pacers have years of running experience, completing an assortment of 5Ks, 10Ks, 15Ks, half and full marathons.  Collectively, we support all levels from novice to experienced runners and welcome runners, walkers, and run/walkers.  We train and encourage our team of all paces to run, run-walk, and walk the scenic routes of New York City and beyond. 

But not only do we move together!  We are a growing collective of women and sisterhood who support one another socially.  We host a variety of events, including social gatherings, community service, and volunteering. 

And did we say it's FREE to join?!!!

Only requirements are high vibes, positivity, and an awesome sense of motivation, inspiration, and support!
