To run regularly is fun and improves the condition, the cardiovascular system is pushed and the BMI is optimized. The running group meets once a week. The summer route, about 10 km long, runs up the Main River to Offenbach docks and back. The group also organizes our regular cycling tours and the annual RainbowRun.
We always choose the speed for running and cycling so that everyone can keep up. If there are enough participants, groups with different speeds can also be formed.
We also take part in competitions – so we take part in the FVV XMAS Tournament. To participate in official competitions of the German Triathlon Union and the Hessian Triathlon Association, a licence is required and can be applied for through the FVV. Competitors without a licence can purchase a day licence at their own expense.
Before we approach you about membership, you can join three times without obligation and just try it out. In addition to the basic membership fee, there are also reduced fees, e.g. for students and also temporary memberships. As a member, you can also participate in all other FVV surcharge-free sports. When cycling, costs may arise for necessary journeys by public transport and for food and drink on the way. Entry fees for competitions are to be paid by the participants themselves.
We run on every time of the year, even the weather is bad. Further dates on announcement.

As there are no changing facilities on site, you should come directly to the meeting point in running clothes suitable for the respective weather conditions.
Welcome all who enjoy cycling and cycling tours. We ride with a group leader, but without a coach. On the tours we ride at a speed that everyone can keep up with. We also have longer breaks with refreshments, so that the sociability does not come too short.
In the summer half-year (from April to October) we undertake bicycle tours of between 40 and 90 kilometers, mainly in the Rhine-Main area. The routes are quite different: often flat, then sometimes hilly, but also mountainous.
You will need a bicycle, suitable clothing for the weather and something to drink in between. A bicycle helmet according to EU standards must be worn on all rides.
If you want participate please write an e-mail to email@example.com until two days before the tour.
For further information please look at the german page.
With the RainbowRun, which takes place as part of the annual XMAS Tournament, we want to set a colorful example against homophobia in sports and for an open and tolerant society. The 5k course leads through the Stadtwald in Frankfurt-Goldstein (10k = 2 laps). You can find more information at www.rainbowrun-frankfurt.de
