Here is a little bit about Pecos Running Club!

Pecos Running Club is Artesia, NM’s running community for men and women. The group meets Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. We meet to train with marathon runner and coach, Katrina Pytel. We run at an early hour to beat the extreme heat later in the day. Plus, race days begin early too. Our meeting spot changes during the week, so please check out the How to Join tab to get connected.

If you’re unable to make the training sessions, it’s possible to run at a later time, then submit your running data (mileage and time) to Coach Katrina. PRC maintains an active Facebook group where group members post about their workouts. It’s fun and highly supportive. Please add your own pics and updates!
PRC believes running is about competing against yourself while having a great time with fellow runners. Individuals should NOT compete with fellow members. We have ALL started from square one. Don’t be discouraged if you, at any point of your membership, find yourself last or behind.

If you’re interested in joining, please email pecosrunningclub@gmail.com expressing your interest in the club. We look forward to hearing from you! We do offer membership plans to make the club fun with swag and personalized training, but it isn’t mandatory to purchase one to start running with the group, but we hope you will consider purchasing one if you enjoy the experience.
