What we're about

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 / 3-ish mile run on Wednesday evenings 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 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.
