• Monday Morning Getting on Track!

    Roosevelt High School Track

    We normally recommend a different workout each week for the group. Please check the comments here a few days before the event for details of the week's group workout.

    NOTE: During marathon training seasons those training for marathon sometimes run longer repeats off the track (often, but not always, running over to Green Lake to run them on the "inner loop" path).

    HEALTH AND SAFETY: Please DO NOT ATTEND this week if you are unwell or have had recent contact with anyone who might be covid positive.

    MASKS/BUFFS/FACE-COVERINGS: Please wear or bring one at least for the start. Once we are running each small group can decide on their own policy, but please be respectful to anyone who chooses to wear a face covering.

As of 8/17/2021 in the light of the recent rise in COVID cases in the area, we ask that all participants (regardless of vaccination status) wear masks when congregating before and after the event. Please be considerate of your fellow runners' personal comfort level. Some guidelines can be read at the bottom of the event description or all of them can be found at this link -- https://safety.rungreenlake.com/

    The Saturday Mid-Morning Run welcomes runners/walkers of all abilities paces and distances. We will have routes that range anywhere from 3 to 12 miles long. By RSVP'ing and commenting in this meetup event lets others know what pace and distance you are looking to run/walk and the more comments and RSVP's means more people will be willing to venture out knowing that someone will be running/walking at their same pace and distance -- comments help!

    * We are currently asking all participants to wear facial coverings for group events, while congregating before and after the run (regardless of vaccination status). Please be respectful to one another regardless.

    * 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.

  • SGLRG Thursday Evening Casual Run

    Green Lake Park

    Casual Thursday is back!

    UPDATE: SGLRG is returning to requiring masks at the meeting points before and after the run. Check out https://safety.rungreenlake.com for additional safety protocol information.

    OTHER UPDATE: We are no longer meeting at Road Runner. We're now meeting at Green Lake across from the Starbucks, where we've been finishing the runs.

    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 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.

    Join us at the Wednesday Night Run @ the Trailhead, where each week, we follow one of our scenic four-mile routes. To see where we're running this week, go here: https://goo.gl/DjtGey

    Everyone is welcome! We usually have around 30-40 runners, including many regulars at various paces who know the routes. We have laminated mini route maps available and we always make sure that everyone arrives safely back to port.

    Newbies are always welcome, as are any out-of-town visitors looking for a fun group of runners! If you're looking for something a little shorter or longer, or something stroller-friendly, just ask us for some shortcut, add-on, or detour suggestions.

    We start meeting up at 5:15pm outside the Brooks Trailhead store at 3400 Stone Way in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood. At 5:35pm, we have introductions, describe the route, and take off. Most of our routes have a photo stop, usually about halfway, where we regroup and then finish.

    After returning to the start, we head across the street to Fremont Brewing, where we hang out and socialize. They have tasty craft beer and cider on tap, as well as some non-alcoholic options. More info at https://www.fremontbrewing.com/visit

    If you need to use the restroom or lockers to store your stuff during the run, the Brooks Trailhead store has both inside. Keep in mind that the store closes at 7pm.

  • Wake Up Wednesday (WUW)

    Location visible to members

    We're re-starting WUW after a long pandemic hiatus and we're looking forward to meeting 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 :)

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

    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).

    We recommend all runners either be 2 weeks past their final vaccine shot or wear a mask and practice physical distancing when interacting with others. Please be considerate of your fellow runners' personal comfort level and also check out https://safety.rungreenlake.com for additional safety protocol information.

  • Tuesday Evening Run (TER)

    Green Lake Park Wading Pool

    Note on safety (beginning 8/17/2021): In light of the recent rise in COVID cases in the area, we ask that all runners (regardless of vaccination status) wear masks when congregating before and after the run. We also ask that you eat outside if you're sticking around post-run for some pizza.

    Please be considerate of your fellow runners' personal comfort level and also check out https://safety.rungreenlake.com for additional safety protocol information.

    —————————

    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 support you through your training plans, whatever they may be.

    For all the first time runners: Hop over to our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/SGLRG/) after RSVP-ing and check out our massive presence there. You can easily find someone to connect with there for future runs! Our TER turnout is much larger than the RSVP list.

    If you have a jacket or small bag you want to store during your run, you can do so at Zeeks pizza. Just stop in before the run and ask them to hold it in the back for you (consider sticking around for pizza in return for the favor).

    We offer three different routes to choose from:

    3 miles: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/4435923976

    This route actually clocks in at about 3.3 miles, but it's better than your standard lake loop because we spend the first couple miles running up and along the top of Phinney Ridge with the 5 mile group. At 65th street we head back down the east side of the ridge and follow our noses back to Zeeks for some pizza and fun!

    5 miles: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/4436114944

    Our most popular route; we head up Phinney ridge on 80th and track south past the Woodland Park Zoo, after which we fly back down 50th and under Aurora. The trip back up to Zeeks always goes faster than you imagine it will and finishes with high-fives/fistbumps from your fellow runners for a job well done!

    7 miles: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/4436115106

    I heard you like hills, so we've got a couple for ya. We start with a climb up Phinney ridge and then head down the west side and into Whittier Heights. We then turn down 15th to 65th, trying to conserve some energy in preparation for the aggressive, 200+ foot climb back up Phinney (bonus points for running the entire hill). Once we get back to the top, we rejoin the 5-mile route for a casual jog around Woodland Park and back to Zeeks.

    Hope to see you this Tuesday!
