Meet the 2017 #SRCBrooks Team!

2017 Bridle Trails Winter Running Festival – Jan 14, 2017

Our annual tromp through the mud came and went, this year minus the mud. The trails were hard and dry and fast and numerous CRs were set, including three 50k pairs teams coming under the old mark of 3:13! Thanks to all who braved the sunny but frigid and we hope to see you out again in 2018! – FULL RESULTS!
Takao Suzuki is making a habit of taking great race photos at our annual Bridle Trails races, and 2017 was no exception. Don’t miss this year’s photos and while you’re here, take a trip in the time machine to recent years as well! Thank you Takao!


The easiest way to get faster is to inject human growth hormones into your body. The next best way is to train naturally and consistently and meeting us for workouts every Wednesday evening! We meet at the Garfield HS track and we’ll start running at 6:30.
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.
Fall XC Info
Each autumn, the Wednesday Workout transitions into the XC workouts as many of our members team up for a fun XC season. Fill out the Google Form and let Stefan know if you’re interested in racing with us! We welcome all speeds and even guys with goatees.


Meet us each Sunday 8am at Cougar Mtn’s Sky Country Trailhead for fun on the trails. Runs are 8-14 miles in length and welcome to all skill levels. Occasionally we will start from other locations around the beautiful cascades; 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 Monday 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.
