Dear Members,

In accordance with CDC guidelines and the recommendations of Governor Inslee regarding coronavirus COVID-19 and social distancing, we have decided to suspend all group runs and group training sessions for an indeterminate amount of time.

We know how important training partners are and how much the running community leans on each other for support and motivation but anything we can do to slow the spread of this virus and to flatten the curve is the right thing to do. Even if you feel you are at low-risk for severe symptoms or for contracting this, some SRC members work in high-touch jobs, have children at home, care for the elderly, and we don't want any of us to become carriers that might infect others who are in high-risk groups for severe symptoms.

On the other hand, go run! Times like these are difficult and running can be just what you need to vent some pressure and stress. We'll be on the socials and will post updates soon as experts advise it is safe to resume our group activities.


Martin Criminale, SRC President

Our annual tromp through the mud came and went, with mildly muddy but very runnable trails, under a clear sky! Thanks to all racer and we hope to see you out again in 2021! - FULL RESULTS!

Takao Suzuki is making a habit of taking great race photos at our annual Bridle Trails races, and 2020 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.

[Cougar Series: 2020] A message from the race director: If you are like us, you are daydreaming about Sky Country. The chatter, the familiar faces, the competition, the @flyinglionbrewing Kolsch. We are even nostalgic for porta-potty lines. With full hearts and fingers crossed, we hope to welcome you to Sky Country in June."

We got our requisite social distancing group photo as well as some action shots! ...because it was light ☀️ enough to do so the *whole* time.
