About WGRC


Voted #1 "Gentlemen's Running Club" in Westwood

It began with four friends meeting up at the high school to get into better shape. Years later, the Westwood Gentlemen's Running Club (WGRC) has grown to over two dozen, who meet year-round for a weekly group run around Westwood, MA.

The group is casual and non-competitive. We meet at the high school track on Saturday mornings for a weekly run.  On the first Saturday of each month we hold a Mystery Run, often concluding for breakfast at one of our local breakfast spots.  We also attend race events and coordinate group socials at our favorite watering holes.  Check out the Events Calendar for more details.

The weekly group run consist of three possible routes. The standard route is a 4.3 mile loop (large), but it can be shortened up to a 3.4 mi loop (medium) or a 2.4 mi loop (small) for those just getting into running or those who may be recovering from injury.  There is even a trail run through Lowell Woods just to mix things up.

If you wish to join send us an email or just show up on any Saturday morning. There's no membership fee to join!
