2016 Cougar Mountain Trail Run Series

Registration is open for the summer long, the short series, or any of the many individual races this summer on Cougar Mountain, ranging from the 5k distance all the way up to 26.2 miles. Once again we’re happy to state that $15 of every registration fee will go directly to King County Parks, so get the calendar out and pick some dates that aren’t interfering with weddings!

**2016 UPDATE**
XC season is over, and we’ll be meeting at the Garfield High School track (still at 6:30pm) from now until the next XC season begins in September. Some workouts will be on the track, some workouts we’ll jog to from the track, but find us at Garfield and let’s get in shape!

Keep an eye on our Facebook or Twitter for any changes in the schedule. Workouts are free and open to standing club members. Non members are welcome to come give the workouts a trial run.


Sherrard Ewing is leading our revamped Sunday group runs! Rather than running at Cougar Mtn every Sunday morning, we’ll be moving around the city to various locales (though yes, Cougar Mtn will be a regular stop–note, when at Cougar Mtn now, we will be meeting at Sky Country Trailhead instead of Redtown Trailhead). Keep an eye on our Meetup page for each weekend’s location, and we hope to see you soon!


FLB 5 Route“Running and brewing complement each other in a beautifully circular fashion. One provides a cause for celebration and need for sustenance. The other provides the sustenance, means of celebration, and need to run.” -Evan Williams

Meet at Flying Lion Brewing in Columbia City every Friday for 5 miles (there is also a 5K option) at whatever pace you fancy. SRC member Evan Williams designed the route to resemble the profile of FLB’s logo. Enjoy the lion’s nose/mane through area parks and climb “The Wing” back to the neighborhood streets.Pints after are optional, of course. The brewery will also provide water and the next door neighbors are Full Tilt Ice Cream! Kids and dogs both allowed in the brewery, but no beer for the kids.
See the Meetup Page for more details.
