With the cancellation of many local running events this spring due to the COVID-19 virus, a local sporting goods store started a Facebook group for runners to keep connected while they practice social distancing.

Fleet Feet and started Fleet Feet WNY Running is NOT Cancelled for members to share their runs and walks socially.

“This page is for every runner and walker in Western New York to share, support and help keep running or walking during this crisis,” owner Ellen Brenner-Boutillier  said in a Monday press release.  “Exercise is such a critical piece to our mental health during this time and we want to help people share those experiences.  We are seeing people from Niagara Falls to Geneva sharing their daily adventures with proper social distancing.”

Another great way for WNY to stay connected...at a distance.
