There's an app for that...

IVS has started using some free apps to help our members and guests get connected and share information about runs with each other (refer to our contact page for info on using the apps).

< Meetup

Meetup is an app that allows people to find and connect with others in their area who share common interests.  IVS uses Meetup to organize free fun runs for the local running community.

Strava >

Strava allows you to map and record your runs online, join challenges and follow your friends.  IVS has started a club on Strava for local runners to connect with each other and compete for the top spot on various weekly leaderboards.
