“We had a lot of runners who came into the store who wanted to bring people together for a social run like this,” said Joshua Boles, owner of Twisted Trails Running Co.

Known as a more casual run — usually around three miles — The BARley Beer Run takes off at 5:15 p.m. from the Twisted Trails Running Co. shop every Thursday and ends with 50 percent off the first beer for participating runners.

“It’s such an active town, and it’s great to be partnering up with runners and bikers so they can come relax and have a beer after,” said Kara Kahn, manager at The BARley Colorado Craft & Draft.

After receiving more input from the active community, Boles and his wife, Susan, added other group runs that began this week.

Every Monday, moms and dads have the opportunity to attend a 9:30 a.m. run that starts at the Bud Werner Memorial Library. Welcoming strollers as well, this run will take place primarily along the Core Trail. The length of the run will vary depending on how far the group wants to go.

The first Tuesday night run was this week, and it will continue to take place weekly at 5:30 p.m. starting at the Twisted Trails Running Co. Open to all running abilities, each run will be on a variety of trails or roads, and the distance will vary depending on the runners’ goals for the night.

Starting this Saturday at 9 a.m., ambitious runners who are training for the 2015 Steamboat Marathon and Half-Marathon this summer have the opportunity to boost their motivation. The group is designed around an 18-week training program, and distances will gradually increase as race day approaches.

Steamboat Mountain Runners is another group in town that offers training events throughout the year, with the Twisted Trails running groups offering additional options for runners with a range of ability levels.

“It’s definitely a way to bring runners together and adds that element of accountability,” said Dan Hohs, who hosts the Thursday night and Saturday morning runs. “It’s all about just having fun and socializing with other people who have common interests.”
