  1. First off let me thank you for you books No meat athlete triathlon road map and training plan. And the marithon road map. They have been a wealth if information for me. Looking forward to next year and running my first race. But how can I start a running group in my area. Am Brampton, Ontario. Canada. Am too far from Toronto to join theirs. Any tips or advice is muchly appreciated

  2. Selfishly, I would LOVE to see a Princeton, NJ NMA Running group. My hunch is that there are a bunch of NMAs out here!

    • Just looking for a NJ group myself…..

      • I am wondering if there is any legit interest in this in NJ…? Perhaps in a central location like Princeton or Trenton or something like that?

        • Flemington area should some interest because of Dr. Furhman’s influence in this area. Princeton is kind of far for me. About an hour away…

          • I would be open to that, Nadine. I am actually in Hillsborough, which makes it a little easier. For a once per month thing, that would not be so bad. It “could” be a NMA NJ group, based in that area. Again, just thinking out loud here.

    • I am interested to attend one somewhere near to Princeton. Open for other locations too.

    • Michelle says:

      I would be interested to join a Princeton/Trenton central jersey group too

  3. Its time for GERMANY =) If some of you guys are interested text me 🙂

    • Pia Schneider says:

      Hey Christian, i’m also from Germany and would love to be in a NMA group. So if someone is from Stuttgart, please don’t hesitate:)

      • Hey Pia,

        just read this here NOW 😀 If you are still interested in any groups or founding an official NMA Germany group, let me know. Currently I am living in Bavaria. You could best contact me via e-mail:

        Just le me know.Ready when you are =)

  4. Do we have any NMA walking or running groups in England ,thanks Glenn.

  5. Any takers in South Africa?

  6. Lanilovesfitness says:

    Would love to join the San Diego or Los Angeles NMA group ! But we need to make one here in the valley in Palm Springs CA ! 😀 that way it’d be easier for me to join each time

  7. Any chances we can form a group in Brazil? More specifically Rio?
    Guess I will buy one of the T-shirts of No meat athlete and run around, to see if I get recognised by the other plant based runners! 😀
    Contact me if you are around!

  8. I’m from London, but I live in Changsha I’m China now. I won’t hold my breath, but any takers?

    I plan to move back to Bangkok by the end of the year, so anyone there keep me in mind too.

  9. Hello, I’m French and I live in Marseille. I’d be happy to be in touch with people living in Provence or in France.
    Bonjour, je suis française et j’habite à Marseille. Je serais ravie d’être en contact avec des personnes résidant en Provence ou en France.

  10. Michele says:

    Its time for Brazil!!!!I would liketo participate in Campinas SP Brazil!

  11. East Orange New Jersey!!! Any one near there?

  12. Anne-Sophie says:

    I wish there was a group in Québec City!

  13. Hi,
    I’m from Sligo in Ireland which is about 2 and a half hours from Dublin, so joining the Dublin group is not really an option for me. Any chance of a sligo group? I’m really in need of exercise and motivation at the moment. 🙂

  14. François says:

    Bonjour, je suis super surpris qu’il n’y ait aucun groupe français, çà tente quelqu’un ?

  15. How about Taipei, Taiwan? Or Taiwan in general? 🙂

  16. dawn smith says:

    How can I connect to a group in my area (Houston, Texas) without logging onto Facebook? Any information is greatly appreciated!

  17. Hi I am based in Dundalk but I spend many week ends in Dublin, I would like to find fellows NMAs.

  18. Time for a Perth Western Australia group, since there is already at least 3 of us in this group….

  19. Christone says:

    Anyone interested in starting a group in either the Somerville/ Hillsborough area or Flemington area in NJ?

  20. Hello My No Meat Athletes.. I’m Based in Greece on a small Island called Kefalonia .. I’m the only Vegan here:) Greeks dont do vegan …lol….. I’m a Long Distance Runner & Long Distance Triathlete..
    I Have a small Hotel here in a small village called Skala & everyone is welcome to be part of my Pelagos family….. It would be great if I have more vegan friends here in Greece… Yammas from Sunny Kefalonia 🙂

  21. I am going to visit Chicago this year!

  22. If anyones interested in starting a group with me in Mallorca, Spain then I’m here. Started following the 10k training programme today and been running for a few months.

  23. It’s really a bummer that the only way to get involved in these groups is through Facebook. I left Facebook several years ago and have no interest in rejoining for my own personal reasons. Is there any other way I can get connected with the St. Louis group?

  24. We most definitely need an NMA group in Brisbane!

  25. Hi, anyone near Simrishamn Sweden.
    I became a medberoende of healh made simple yesterday.
    I’m very happy that I took the time to really read this email.
    If you live nearby let me know, maybe se could “peppa varandra, när det känns bläää.”
    I have run a marathon on my bucketlist. I get started and then I fall of the treadmill, right back into the recliner.
    With this “small steps & easy” I really do believe I can make it.
    I’m really commited to try this..

  26. shimon says:

  27. How about Spain?! I’m in Madrid ☺

  28. Looking for groups or interest in Grand Rapids, MI.

  29. Is there a group for Taipei, Taiwan?

  30. Greta Boshier says:

  31. I m from India I m 22 years old weight 77kg height 5.8 ft I want to loose belly fat I don’t eat meat or eggs or chicken or fish…Please someone help me with workout and diet

  32. Kayleigh says:

    I just started reading NMA this week, and am hooked, I am working on incorporating a Plant-Based diet for 1-2 meals each day this week, and snacks strictly being fruit/veggies. I am loving the way this book is laid, and all the emails already! Can we get a group started for the Syracuse, NY area though?? We have a huge running community here and I know there are a lot of plant-Based, Vegan or Vegitarian people here too! I know a lot of people in my running group are strongly looking to get their diets under control, so having a Syracuse one would be great! Meanwhile I just requested to be apart of the Rochester group they are 1.5-2 hours from me, but its more for the general accountability that it will be nice!

  33. anything in India ?? Mumbai

  34. How about an FB group in the Philippines?

  35. Interested in the Dublin group but I’m not on social media, is the info available somewhere that’s not Facebook? Thanks, Anne
