DETROIT (CBS DETROIT) – There are multiple ways to stay fit without going to the gym and while everyone is in their own fitness journey, these four workouts are worth a try.


Lance Woods and Joe Robinson, co-founders of WeRun313, aim to dismantle the narrative that African-Americans don’t run and move the culture forward in a way that has never been done, specifically in Detroit.

The club was established to create social experiences powered by running and bring awareness to the mental and physical health benefits of running, while connecting and building with like-minded individuals in the city. Don’t worry, it’s for runners of all levels every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday in midtown and downtown Detroit.

Here’s where they meet: 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday at 66 E. Forest, 6:30 p.m. on Thursday at 1801 Atwater Street and 9 a.m. on Sunday at the Belle Isle Fountain.

“Tuesdays are where you can get your feet wet. It’s lots of fun, short distance and anybody can come out and accomplish this goal. Thursdays are our 5K and 10K runs. You can run the Dequindre Cut back and forth for 3.1 miles or dig deeper for the 6.2-miler. The great thing about Thursdays is that we train in packs, working on pace. Sundays are long runs. The distance can be anywhere from 8-15 miles,” said Woods.

Since their launch date run, the club averages about 40-70 runners every meetup.
