DUE TO THE ONGOING COVID-19 OUTBREAK, WUW HAS BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL IT IS SAFE TO RESUME. Based on King County & Seattle Parks recommendations to minimize the spread of COVID-19 to not congregate, we recommend people looking to run on Saturday mornings self-organize as they see fit. Thank you for your support and understanding in this unprecedented time, we hope that you are able to continue to run while practicing social distancing to limit the spread of the virus and help protect our community. Stay safe and be well. Thank you ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Come meet us in front of Starbucks at Green Lake on Wednesday mornings at 5:30 am for a casual run around the lake or perhaps jump in for a tempo run. There are plenty of options as far as pace and number of laps that our group runs. great turnouts are what make Wednesday mornings so fun :) Option #1- run around the lake- once, twice, or more if you really feel like it. Option #2- run the 6-mile off-lake route. The route tends to vary week to week, but gets mapped out and posted on this page by Tuesday afternoons (and gets posted on Tuesdays on our FB page). Option #3- run a tempo run (either around the lake, during the 6-miler off-lake, or the seasonal Hanson's marathon training tempo routes). *Our newest addition to Wednesday morning is the post run "Coffee Club that meets and enjoys a nice drink and possible treat following the run!
***** DUE TO THE SPREAD OF COVID-19, THIS WEEKLY GROUP RUN HAS BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. This a critical moment in the growing outbreak of COVID-19 in King County. Seattle & King County is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to protect the public's health. We understand these actions will have a tremendous impact on all members of our community. These efforts are meant to slow the spread of novel coronavirus and reduce the number of people infected. ***** Join the us for one of our rotating four-mile running routes! All paces are welcome! Every week, no matter what, we always hang out and socialize afterward at nearby Fremont Brewing, which has tasty craft beer and cider on tap, as well as some non-alcoholic options. Check out our "subway map" that shows all of the routes, and the 2020 route schedule (https://goo.gl/DjtGey ) to see where we're running this week. Hosts Patrick, Yao, Chris, and Denise provide mini route maps and always make sure that everyone arrives safely back to port. If you're looking for something a little shorter, just ask us for some shortcut suggestions. Despite what you see in the RSVP list, we typically have 15-30 runners each week, with many regulars who know the routes. Newbies are always welcome, as are any out-of-town runners looking for a fun group of runners! We start meeting up at 5:15pm inside the Brooks Trailhead store at 3400 Stone Way in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood. At 5:35pm, we have introductions, describe the route, take a group photo, and head out the door. Most of our routes have a photo stop, usually about halfway, where we regroup. We return to the store, and then head over to Fremont Brewing. In the winter months (November-February), please bring headlamps and reflective gear. In the summer months (June-August), bring a yoga mat if you like, as some of us join a free/donation yoga class at Gas Works Park after the run at 6:30pm. Occasionally, this run is paired with special activities at the store, such as meet-and-greets with Brooks-sponsored athletes or presentations by the Rock'n'Roll Marathon. And twice a year, we organize our own "adventure runs" throughout the neighborhood! At the store, lockers with locks are provided for your stuff, and water and towels are available when we get back. Dogs are welcome! We frequently have dogs with us during the run and at the dog-friendly brewery. If you're thinking about bringing a jogging stroller, please ask us about this week's route. Some of our rotating routes are already stroller-friendly, some would need just a few minor adjustments, and some would be miserable-to-impossible. Hosts Patrick and Chris oftentimes run with strollers! =================== If you're new to the Seattle Green Lake Running Group (SGLRG), the Wednesday Night Run is just one of our many regular weekly runs.

DUE TO THE SPREAD OF COVID-19, THIS RUN HAS BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL SUCH A TIME THAT IT IS DEEMED SAFE TO RESTART HOSTING OF GROUP RUNS/ACTIVITIES. With the recent recommendations from the governor and his task force we will be doing our share to minimize the spread of the corona virus. As a recreational group it is recommended that we keep from meeting as we all do our share of slowing the spread of this virus that has the potential multiply rapidly through a population. Our meet up events will remain up on the site and can be utilized as a placeholder for connecting with other members during our normal meeting times or outside of those meeting times, but events will not be hosted. You can use the comments section to self-organize. For those that wish to continue participating at the normal time of SGLRG events or outside of them please be aware of the following recommendations: * self-organize into small groups (use the comments section) * maintain adequate spacing between yourself and others * frequent hand hygiene, avoid shaking hands, try not to touch your faces * IF YOU ARE SICK YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO STAY HOME ================================================================ RSVP's have been turned off, once the all-clear has been given they will be re-opened. Thanks for doing your part to help slow the spread of the corona virus.
!!! DUE TO THE SPREAD OF THE CORONAVIRUS, THE FRIDAY LAKE UNION RUN (aka FLUR) HAS BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL SUCH A TIME THAT IT IS DEEMED SAFE TO RESTART HOSTING OF GROUP RUNS. We recommend people looking to run on Friday mornings self-organize into smaller groups either at the usual location of this run or a location of their choosing until the emergency conditions have passed. We are also discouraging the large coffee gathering traditionally held after this run event. Please be sensible and stick to smaller group sizes keeping the good of the community in mind. Thank you.
