Join the us for one of our rotating four-mile running routes! All paces are welcome! Check out our "subway map" that shows all of the routes, and the 2019 route schedule (https://goo.gl/DjtGey ) to see where we're running this week. Hosts Patrick, Yao, Chris, and Denise provide mini route maps and always make sure that everyone arrives safely back to port. If you're looking for something a little shorter, just ask us for some shortcut suggestions. Despite what you see in the RSVP list, we typically have 15-30 runners each week, with many regulars who know the routes. Newbies are always welcome, as are any out-of-town runners looking for a fun group of runners! We start meeting up at 5:15pm inside the Brooks Trailhead store at 3400 Stone Way in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood. At 5:35pm, we have introductions, describe the route, take a group photo, and head out the door. Most of our routes have a photo stop, usually about halfway, where we regroup. Every week, no matter what, we always hang out and socialize afterward at nearby Fremont Brewing, which has tasty craft beer and cider on tap, as well as some non-alcoholic options. At the store, lockers with locks are provided for your stuff, and water and towels are available when we get back. Occasionally, there will be post-run presentations or other store-sponsored activities. In the winter months (November-February), please bring headlamps and reflective gear. In the summer months (June-August), bring a yoga mat if you like, as some of us join a free/donation yoga class at Gas Works Park after the run at 6:30pm. Dogs are welcome! We frequently have dogs with us during the run and at the dog-friendly brewery. If you're thinking about bringing a jogging stroller, please ask us about this week's route. Some of our rotating routes are already stroller-friendly, some would need just a few minor adjustments, and some would be miserable-to-impossible. Host Patrick oftentimes runs with a stroller!
Casual Thursday is focused more on the social aspect of the Seattle Greenlake Runners. While running is the focus, we encourage runners to come out afterwards and dine, socialize and hangout. After all (especially during the colder and darker months), seeing familiar faces is all the motivation many of us need to get are run in. Run starts at Road Runner and runs clock wise around the outside of the lake. Parking is easily available at the park and ride on 65th and Roosevelt and has been typically a 1/2 way point from Road Runner and the post run stops. The winter months are darker and visibility is more of an issue I'd suggest investing in reflective gear and wearable lights. Let's get out there and run.
Have your Fridays been lacking a run? Have you been wanting to explore the area around Lake Union? Or maybe you're like us and you live near Lake Union and some days driving is too much. If this sounds like you, come join us for the Friday Lake Union Run (FLUR)! We meet outside of the former Blue Moon Burgers location at 703 N 34th St. on 34th and Fremont (see map above) at 5:55am, and depart on the run at 6:00am sharp (seriously! we really do leave right on time every week). The run then heads south (counter clockwise) over the Fremont Bridge and down Westlake. We do a lap around the lake, which is just about 6 miles. After the run, we all head to Milstead across the street on 34th to get delicious coffee. If you have a little extra time in the morning, please join us! :) If people want to meet at Starbucks on Westlake, they can join the group as we pass by at about 6:15. Please let us know in your RSVP if you're planning to meet at Starbucks so the Fremont people will know to keep an eye out for you as we pass by. PARKING: There is some street parking along N 34th Street across from Blue Moon Burgers (watch for time restrictions if you are staying past 7) and also back-in diagonal parking on 34th in front of PCC. More street parking is available along N 35th, around the corner and uphill. Detour Route during Fairview Bridge Construction: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/2235273376
Every Saturday morning we have a nice tradition of getting together and starting our day with a group run. It seems like every weekend we head off on one adventure or another. Each week participants will post their goal distance and pace in the comments, which does a couple of things. It determines what distances to map for each Saturday as well as let's others see who they can run with and who has something similar planned. Get your RSVP's in and your distance requests and the rest seems to take care of itself. Join us at 6:55am each Saturday morning as we organize into distance and pace groups. Find new training partners, meet new friends and enjoy the benefits of running with others. The weekly running routes and plan will be posted below each week. Make sure you review the route that you will be running each week prior to arriving. Posting in the comments and arriving on time each will increase your chances of finding others to run. Thanks for running with us! This event is only as successful as those who show up to support it! ————- Saturday Morning Rise & Shine Run- 3 mile route- https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/2737341046/ 5.95 mile route- https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/2737339471/ 8 mile route- https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/2737336855/ 10 mile route- https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/2737323253/ 12 mile route- https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/2737319902/ 14 mile route- https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/2737313398/ 16 mile route- https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/2737309765/ 18 mile route- https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/2737305613/
