We don’t stop running just because it’s cold, dark and maybe a little icy. Join in on free, weekly group runs held by the Mill City Running store (411 E. Hennepin Ave., Mpls.).

The runs, which start and end at the store, include the downtown Minneapolis riverfront. If you want to compete, the Securian Winter Run, a race with 5K, 10K and half-marathon options, takes place on Jan. 27 in downtown St. Paul, registration is $45 to $55.
