The HopCat 5k Group Run

Monday I went on a group run with my running group, Michigan Running Club.

We met up at RUNdetroit to do their Blue loop 3 mile loop and had a great time.  Before we left we got a picture of the group.

Here's the loop we ran:
Starts and ends at RUNdetroit
The route took you in a loop with a run through Wayne State University's campus.  This is the first time I've ever been on campus.  It was really nice!

After we made our way through campus we started heading towards the Fisher building(as in Fisher Body).  It was lit up nicely and is an awesome building.

As we made our way back down John R, we passed the back of the Detroit Institute of Arts.

One more turn and we made our way back to Canfield where we past our final destination - Hopcat!
Hopcat has two floors and TONS of beers to choose from.  We ended at RUNdetroit and then walked over to HopCat only a block away for some food and beer.  It was the perfect area for a nice short run and a great time to meet some of the people in the club.

I even had pins made up so everyone that finished(everyone that came) received a pin.

Also, many thanks to Justin and Alia, owners of RUNdetroit for supporting the group and getting some prizes for giveaways!

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!


  1. Fun! I'm bummed I missed it but school nights are pretty much out of the questions for these types of things unfortunately.

  2. Hey, those are my usual running grounds. =) I love running on campus! Funnily enough, I haven't been to HopCat since it opened. I think I need to try a Monday night like you did when it is less crazy.
