The Hoya Lawya Runners Executive Board is committed to offering our members safe and enriching fitness experiences. In line with CDC guidelines and orders by D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, we will not be offering in-person group runs for the foreseeable future. Our organization recognizes the tremendous benefits of running on physical and mental health, and we are committed to creating opportunities for our members to stay active during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be offering weekly workouts to be completed on your own as well as free at-home fitness resources. Shoot us pictures or a message about your latest workout, and we will feature you on our site!
