What we're about

Green Lake is one of the most popular destinations for urban runnings in the Seattle area. The Seattle Green Lake Running Group was created with the intent of creating a running community that supports and encourages a healthy and active lifestyle through group events and participation. Our goal is to try and have something for everyone and the more runners that attend events the better chance that there will be running buddies for all. Whether you're looking to increase your cardiovascular endurance, meet some new exercise buddies or have training partners for your next race you've come to the right place.

Saturday Morning Rise & Shine- Market Snowball Run!

Green Lake Bathhouse Theater

Hey All, This week we are heading to Pike Place Market for our Lake Sammamish Half 12 mile distance. It’s the longest run of the build up! However we want everyone coming to the market so will have jump in points along the route so those running less than 12 can still come and their routes will start and end at the same location. We also have the Capital One Cafe on Westlake sponsoring this weeks run and will be proving an aid station/pit stop on the way back from our market adventure. They will have refreshments and snacks so let’s definitely take advantage since this doesn’t happen very often (if ever)! Routes will be shared by Friday. Just be aware that if you are running shorter than 12 your start time will be adjusted so that you are joining in with the group as they arrive at your location so you can run with others doing your pace.

Saturday Mid-Morning Run

Green Lake Bathhouse Theater

~We'll be in the bathhouse theater parking lot~ The Mid-Morning Run mirrors all the same weekly routes as the 7am group, just with a later start time for those that want/need it. Go ahead, get your sleep, and your Saturday run in too! Please post the distance and pace your looking for in the comments below. Not only does it help the route creator to know what the people want, it gives others that might come the knowledge that someone else is running the same as them. The more the merrier! This Saturday's Routes --- Will be posted here on the previous Friday! We're a diverse group that caters to everyone from the 1st time runner to the seasoned marathoner.

Stair Climbing Workout

10th Ave E & E Howe St

The name of the event says it all, we climb stairs for a great lower body exercise. This event comes around every other Sunday( 2nd and last Sunday) of every month and it is for all fitness levels. We start with a warm-up drill where we climb for about 4-5 minutes using different leg variations to get blood flowing. Then we go freestyle for about 30-45 mins. Freestyle here means running up the stairs, walking, jogging, crawling, squad-jumping, frog-jumping,.... however you want to do it as long as you're climbing up the stairs. You'll probably get sore afterwards if you haven't done a stair workout before or it has been a while since you did one but don't let that stop you. Your body will adapt pretty fast if you do it consistently. Strong, powerful, legs/lower-body, burn serious calories, get your heart-rate up-- all in 30-45 mins From the bottom(Lakeview Boulevard) to the top(10th Ave E), there are 13 flights of stairs that gives you a total of 282 steps.
