nÓg Run Club
Drs. Elizabeth came up with the idea to start the nÓg Run Club. The club was created in 2008 initially as a social gathering for runners. With the help of Fleet Feet Raleigh, it grew in popularity very quickly, and after a couple of years of operation, became a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. In 2019, over $100,000 was donated to local charities from contributions received at the club's weekly runs, as well as the proceeds from three major events: the St. Paddy's 4 Miler, World's Largest Flip Flop 1K Walk, and Oktoberfest 4 Miler. Since turning non-profit, the club has donated more than $800,000 to local charities!
As mentioned, the Run Club meets every Monday night at 6:15pm at the Raleigh Beer Garden. Some people run, some people walk, and some just come to socialize. After the run, you can stick around for trivia starting at 7:15pm, as well as a special $5 menu for nÓg Run Club patrons.For more information on the Run Club, or to register for any of the aforementioned races, please visit www.nÓgRunClub.com.
