New Group: Binghamton Area Trail Runners

Here at Confluence Running, we believe that getting out to experience what the Binghamton area trails have to offer is a great alternative to the standard monotony of road running.  The store is working on organizing a trail running group for the area with the hopes of providing essential trail maps and the resources needed to enjoy a run out on the trails successfully.  Who can run trails?  The answer is Anyone!  You do not need to have any trail experience to be apart of the group.

 Benefits of off-road running:

*Breathing fresh air not car exhaust
*Going your own pace-never having to wait at stop lights or for cars to cross a road.
* Strengthing and toning the legs from uphill and downhill running
* Soft surfaces help reduce impact
*It boosts mood and brain function
* You burn more calories in less time
* You gain an enhanced level of balance
 *Running becomes more of an adventure rather than just simple training
* Running in the woods is just fun!

The Binghamton Bathroom Project

Adidas Runner while trying to Pee in the Woods - Confluence Running

 Have you ever gone on a long run and find yourself trapped under a bridge trying to pee before someone comes by?  Have you ever sneaked into someone's backyard to steal a quick sip from their hose because you ran out of water in your Amphipod?  Have you ever gone into McDonald's during a blazing 95 degree day, no shirt, sports bra only, short shorts, dripping with sweat and tried to use the bathroom only to find dirty looks and the bathroom closed?

Confluence Running Triple Cities Area Binghamton NY Map
Confluence Running has started mapping the Triple Cities Area to find welcoming bathroom and water stops.  Confluence is speaking with all the local business to be placed on our map.  All stops will include address and operating hours for your convenience.  Any of the stops on the map will welcome your sweaty look to support you on your run.

This Includes Confluence.  Cold Water and a bathroom are always welcome.  Stop by and chat before heading out again.  Check out our Group Runs every Thursday night at 6:30pm.
