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.

Group Waiver:

I know that running and participating in SGLRG events are potentially hazardous activities. I should not participate in group activities unless I am medically able and properly trained. I assume all risks associated with running and participating in SGLRG events including but not limiting to, falls, contact with other participants, the effects of the weather including high heat and/or humidity, the conditions of the road and traffic on the various courses and routes, and such risk being known and appreciated by me. Having read this waiver and knowing these facts, and in consideration of your acceptance of my application for membership, I for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release the Seattle Green Lake Running Group, and all sponsors, their representatives and successors from all claims or liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation in these group activities even though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of the person named in this waiver.

SGLRG Thursday Evening Casual Run

Needs a location

Thursday Evening Casual Run is a social run welcoming runners of all levels. We meet at Green Lake across from the Starbucks (see the routes) at 6:30, run to Green Lake, and turn left. After the run, we eat! During the warmer months we disperse to grab takeout (PCC, Local Bigger Burger, Zeeks, and Frelard Tamales are all good options nearby!) and meet back at the lake to eat together. Bring a blanket/towel!

There are 3, 4, and 5 mile routes with runners at a variety of paces. We generally stick to the outer loop on Green Lake which is a little more runner-friendly, but recommend the inner loop for the section along Aurora due to heavy traffic. Don't hesitate to ask for a regular to run with you if you want help following the route.

Saturday Morning Rise & Shine Run!

Needs a location

Hi - Rira here, I'll be hosting again this Saturday. Announcements at 705am and running at 710am. Get your distance requests in!

Every Saturday morning we have a nice tradition of getting together and starting our day with a group run. Each week participants RSVP, post their goal distance and pace in the comments

  1. to help determine what distances to map
  2. allows others to see who they can run with of similar distance and pace.

Come find us at 7am every Saturday morning as we organize into distance and pace groups and review the route they are running each week.

Find new training partners, meet new friends, and enjoy the benefits of running with others. Our weekly running routes and plan will be posted below each week, please review the route maps prior to the start of the run. Posting in the comments and arriving on time each will increase your chances of finding others to run.

Thanks for running with us! This event is only as successful as those who show up to support it!
