Local running club thrives and grows but has room for more

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Last fall we reported on a resident with a great idea.

Scott Ruhlman was regularly running in Shoreline and thought it would be fun to have some company. He started with a small group which met every Saturday morning - but invited anyone to join them.

Scott Ruhlman's update:

The running club changed names to the Richmond Beach Running Club (from north seattle runners) and we have 15-20 runners who meet each Saturday at the Richmond Beach Coffee Company from a roster of 50-60 who will come at any given week. 1442 NW Richmond Beach Road, Shoreline 98177.

There is no cost and there are runners ranging from inexperienced to regular runners. We run for an hour and enjoy the scenery of the area and the company of other runners and would love to have others join us! Many are training for their first races this spring from 5k to half marathons, and even several are even attempting to complete a marathon, so there are many different types.

The club is primarily social, and many come for an easy run and conversation as we all meet up after an hour run at the coffee shop and catch up over coffee or brunch. The group is growing even through the difficult weather, so it will be exciting to see the group grow as the days get longer and spring hits.

Many new runners worry that they are not "in shape" enough for the club - the opposite is true. Instead the club has many who are doing just that - starting to get in shape -  so we encourage runners of all types to give us a try.

Track workouts added
We run track workouts about twice a month with Lane Seely as our coach. The exact dates are on a month to month basis and are available on our calendar which can be obtained by subscribing to our weekly email list at our website.

The track workout is a great fun way to run with others while working on pace and speed. Many who have never done a track workout are surprised to find out how fun it can be and is a nice change of pace way to run.

Childcare provided
Our childcare is a new addition and is a way for parents to have a way to drop off their children during the run under the supervision of one of the other parents in the group during the Saturday morning run. If that is something they are interested in, we ask that they email for more details.
