What we're about
EVERY TUESDAY @ 6:30 PM at The Bungalow Sports Grill!
Join the Official site of the Shirlington Running Club (SRC), a FREE club for all those interested in both running and socializing. The SRC meets every Tuesday at 6:30 PM at Samuel Beckett's Irish Pub in the Shirlington Village.
The SRC was founded in 2009 by VA residents Mirentxu Meyer and Shirley Santos, for like-minded people with social interests. Inspired by our founders, the goals of SRC are to promote fitness and build a sense of community.With currently over 2,800 members, the SRC meets every Tuesday evening at 6:30 PM at Samuel Beckett's to run a 5K summer route (6K in the winter), and hosts a post-run happy hour by savoring the flavors of Shirlington’s famous Samuel Beckett's and socializing until the wee hours of the night! Though not all of the members turn out weekly, the SRC’s weekly attendance always surpasses 100 people no matter what time of the year or what the weather. Members receive an SRC tech running shirt after accomplishing 10 runs and another long sleeve tech after their 100th run. Club membership is offered for free thanks to the group’s success in attracting local sponsors including Pacers Running Stores, Samuel Beckett's, and the Energy Club. In addition to fostering a community and family feel, SRC brings its members together throughout the year with other neighborhood events, sport activities, and volunteer opportunities.
Find us by the pool tables for check-ins and registration. We welcome all levels of runners, from the beginners to the experienced marathoner, at all ages, and from all locations. What a better way to get a work out in and meet new people with like interests in the area.
The SRC hopes to see you this Tuesday night, rain or shine!
