Join the us for one of our rotating four-mile running routes! All paces are welcome! Check out our "subway map" that shows all of the routes, and read the comments for this week's route. 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 5:30pm, 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.

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.
At the store, lockers with locks are provided for your stuff, and water and towels are available when we get back. Occasionally, there will be post-run presentations or other store-sponsored activities.
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.
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. Host Patrick oftentimes runs with a stroller!
