The Seattle Running Club was started in 2003. SRC was created to provide a community for runners with an emphasis on trail running. We are a diverse group ranging from new runners to elite athletes. We have weekly Sunday runs on the trails. For more info on our club, including membership options, please go to https://seattlerunningclub.org/.
Running hills are designed to develop strength and durability in your running. We alternate between 7-8 mile run and Hill repeats. These repeats will vary from 3 minutes to 10 minutes depending on the work out. The variation in intensity and duration creates an environment for greater adaptations and strength. We first run the trails for 30-45 minutes before going into our repeats. It is very important to be warmed up to get the most out of the work out and avoid injury. Make sure you are staying well hydrated throughout the running season. Bring some water as dehydration is a leading cause of pulled or strained tendons.
Don't forget your headlamp in the Fall, Winter and Spring. Yes this is 5:30 AM.
