Brandeis Running Society

Are you a runner? Are you interested in incorporating fitness into your life? The Brandeis School of Law is starting a  running club this Fall and it's the perfect way to start healthy traditions. The club is intended to be a non-intimidating way for law school students to engage in healthy behavior. Running is a great way to increase cardiovascular health and can relieve law school-related stress. From beginners to advanced runners, we hope to accommodate all levels.
