Astoria Runners is about building community through a shared love of running. We organize weekly runs, group participation in organized races, distance training programs, workshops, and socials.
Our primary run is a 5k Wednesdays at 8:00pm in Astoria Park and along the river. Our pace is generally around 9:30-10:30 min miles. However, all levels of experience are welcome and we adjust paces depending on who is there. We pause at the halfway point and make sure everyone makes it to the end.
Our weekend runs, usually on Sunday, are 6-12 miles at a 9:30-10:30 pace, depending on who is there and what we might be training for.
We meet at the benches in front of the restrooms by the Astoria Park Track.
NOTE: While running is fun and rewarding, it is not without risk. When you agree to attend a run, you are certifying that you are physically fit and responsible for your own actions, and you release and discharge Astoria Runners of any liability for any injury or bodily harm that may occur.
Hope you are staying well during these tough times. In an effort to keep the group active, we are going virtual.
You can run or walk any distance, any where, at any time you choose. The virtual run event is simply an opportunity to touch base regularly with our community until we can meet again in person.
We invite you to share something from your run either on Meetup or Strava(https://www.strava.com/clubs/astoriarunners) so we can see what fellow Astoria Runners are up to and remind us of our community.
Some ideas for what to post:
- What motivated you to run that day ?
- How did you feel during/after the run ?
- A photo of something you saw during the run, or you--on the run
- A personal best, a time, a distance
- Where did you run ?
Instructions/Suggestions for your run
- Please wear a mask (or a bandana) when surrounded by people.
- Stay hydrated.
- Listen to your body at all times.
- Most importantly, have fun.
