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.

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.

**SUSPENDED**. Tuesday Evening Run (TER)

Zeeks Pizza

DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK, WE ARE CURRENTLY SUSPENDED UNTIL A TIME IT IS DEEMED SAFE TO PARTICIPATE IN GROUP EVENTS. WE RECOMMEND THAT FOLKS ORGANIZE INTO SMALLER GROUPS FOR RUNS AS APPROPRIATE AND CONSIDER SKIPPING AFTER-RUN REFRESHMENTS.

For all the first time runners hop over to our FB page after RSVP'ing and check out our massive presence there. You can definitely find someone to connect with there for future runs! Our TER turnout is much larger than the RSVP list. Hope to see you there! Seattle Green Lake Running Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/SGLRG/)

TER is a great way to add a fun, yet challenging, evening run into your running routine. Plus, we almost always get pizza afterwards! Come out weekly and you'll have a new running buddy or 3 to help push you through your training plans.

We switch up our routes depending on the season. During the summer we have a three or six mile options that start by going through Ravenna Park before the six continues on for a lake loop. Wwhen it gets too dark and/or wet to take on the park, we move to our winter routes! Those options are a lake loop (for 3), or a 5 or 7 mile option, both of which take us up 80th to Greenwood and ultimately around the zoo side of the lake. If you're feeling up for it, the 7 mile loop includes the monster 65th hill from Ballard to the top of Phinney Ridge!

Lots more people show up to this run than RSVP due to the consistency of this weekly meetup and our massive FB presence. Check out our group Seattle Green Lake Running Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/SGLRG/)!

Hope to see you this Tuesday!

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!

*SUSPENDED* Wednesday Night Run @ the Trailhead!

*****
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!
