Riff Raff is one of Austin’s oldest run groups. We meet at various venues every Tuesday night, and we train all year round for all kinds of races. For runners of all paces, all levels, and all abilities, Riff Raff is the only group in Austin where the elites and beginners cheer each other on and cheers each other afterward to celebrate. Coach Panther takes pride in “pairing” a great run route with a trendy or classic Austin eating establishment or watering hole, making for a great training run and a great night out with friends.
Whether you’re a 3-hour marathoner or just want to run a couple of times a week to stay in shape, everyone loves great food and drink venues, and Riff Raff visits them all. Coach Panther writes individual training programs, from marathons to half marathons, from triathlons to duathlons, and everything in between. A successful age-group runner and former elite duathlete, Coach Panther has coached with the Road Runners Club of America and USA Cycling and has won numerous awards and races.
Regardless of what you’re training—or not training—for, there’s one thing for sure: Riff Raff is the best running group in Austin!
