Summer may be ending but that doesn’t mean you have to stop running outside!

Based on all these 5k run and walks, it’s actually encouraged.

Fall is the perfect season to get outside, enjoy the breeze and squeeze in some cardio.

Many runs are for a good cause, some directly involve your kiddos or dogs, others require you to have some fun and dress up and others give you wine or hot chocolate upon completion.

In other words, you should definitely look through this list and pick a few that tickle your fancy.

Get your jogging shoes ready!
