Jamii Running Project is a non-profit, inclusive running club located in Northern New Mexico. "Jamii" translates, in Swahili, to community or family. We welcome runners (walkers too!) of all abilities, ages, and cultures. We run year round and we are a member of New Mexico USATF.
We are dedicated to improving running abilities of children, young adults and adults from all cultures and backgrounds in Northern New Mexico through training, education and socialization.
We "Work Together" on our Saturday Morning Group Runs. Check our activities page for time and locations. All ages and abilities are welcome. Refreshments after the run. Group runs are a great way to begin a running program or to integrate into your current training program. Our Saturday runs are open to the public.
Most Sundays we go long. 7-8 miles or more. Check our activities page for details. Bring your fluids. Refreshments after the run.
Join us every Thursday at the Pojoaque 400 meter outdoor track. Coach Doug leads us through your individualized training program with intervals, reps, hill work and more. Check the Activities page for details.
