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 Run!

Needs a location

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!

  • As of 02/17/22, masks are no longer required for this event. Please be considerate of your fellow runners' personal comfort level with their choices
  • Our goal is to not bombard pathways, trails, sidewalks and streets, so please follow traffic laws at all times and be aware of those around you on foot, bicycles and automobiles. Staying to the right will allow room for others to pass uninhibited on the left. when passing others please consider going single file in order to allow for greater spacing as you pass.
  • During our events, please keep in mind that we are all coming from different places and this pandemic has impacted all of us in different ways. Be respectful with your language and conversational topics. Running is a safe topic and a good building block to get to know others better. We want our events to be a safe place in which our members don’t feel threatened, harassed, or experiencing unwelcomed advances. Running is a great way to get to know other and it has helped us build a great community within the Seattle Green Lake Running Group. We can all make a big difference in each other’s overall experience and whether members want to continue attending events.
  • If at any point you have questions/concerns regarding the group, our events, upcoming trainings, races, ideas, incidents, etc...please reach out to our event hosts or group organizers.

Stair Climbing Workout

Needs a location

The name of the event says it all, we climb stairs for a great lower body exercise. This event comes around every Sunday 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.

This event happens twice a month: 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month.
