First, everyone should meet in the same place, stretch together and finish in the same location. Runners should be divided into two or three groups based on ability (for example a slow and competitive group). No matter who finishes first, runners should wait together until both groups complete the run.

It's best to choose a course where no one can get lost and everyone can still see each other (like around a lake). In Boston, many running clubs follow rectangular courses around the Charles River using two bridges that let you see the entire route at once.

Finally, I would recommend tracking everyone's workouts and progress using a group subscription to Weightmania Pro Online. This let's a coach or group leader track individual progress, overall group progress, and allows everyone to communicate and share information.
