GRIIT is Illinois Institute of Technology’s first-ever running and fitness club for beginners, running gods, social runners, and anyone willing to lace up and have fun. GRIIT was created during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic when students were sent home to complete the remainder of their semester away from their friends. As brand new friends in their freshman year Yasi and Gio promised that when the pandemic was over, they would run a 5k together in Chicago. Now, Yasi and Gio are the president and vice president of Go Run IIT, with 40 other members who are passionate about getting fit with their fellow students.
