What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
This is a recurring Meetup for our Saturday tempo workouts! Be sure to check the SRC website home page (seattlerunningclub.org) or the FB pages (@seattlerunningclub) for any day-of updates! The Fine print: WORKOUTS ARE FOR MEMBERS IN GOOD STANDING, ONLY! You're welcome to join us *ONCE* as a n00b, though after that, we'll need you to flash that shiny, new, membership ID to gain access! Thanks for your cooperation! 🙏
RSVP (and pace) is totally casual. Even if you don't see people signed up on Meetup, there are always a handful of regulars out for the run. Between 10 and 20, depending on the state of the skies and desire for beer. Running and brewing compliment each other in a beautifully circular fashion. One provides a cause for celebration and need for sustenance. The other provides the sustenance, means of celebration, and need to run. Meet at Flying Lion Brewing every Monday for 5 miles (there is also a 5 kilometer option) at whatever pace you fancy. Evan Williams (SRC runner and brewer) designed the course to resemble the profile of FLB's logo. Enjoy the lion's nose/mane through area parks and climb "The Wing" back to the neighborhood streets. Pints after are optional, of course. The brewery will also provide water and the next door neighbors are Full Tilt Ice Cream! Kids and dogs both allowed in the brewery, but no beer for the kids.
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.
