Moms Run This Town
MRTT Pleasant Hill / Walnut Creek
If you walk on a local trail on any given morning, chances are you’ll see a Moms RUN This Town (MRTT) member run by. The MRTT Pleasant Hill / Walnut Creek chapter was started in June 2016 by chapter leader Shannel Glaspy and already has around 300 members. Members range in running ability from walkers and beginning runners to sprinters and century (100 mile) runners. There are planned group runs almost every morning, sometimes up to four group runs a day. One of the group’s favorite activities is the virtual relay. Women set a weekly mile goal and are placed on virtual teams. The teams record their miles for the week and track their progress to a destination such as down the Pacific Coast Highway, encouraging each other as they go.
The national MRTT organization started with a stay-at-home mom in Georgia seven years ago and has since spread throughout the states. Helping running moms through online support and local chapters, this organization is a great way to get healthy and active. Non-moms are welcome too and can take part in She RUNS This Town (SRTT.)
