Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update and More - January 16, 2021
The health and safety of our runners is our #1 priority.
Sending you our best wishes this Martin Luther King Jr. weekend.
This national holiday reminds us of the progress we’ve made and work that still needs to be done. We are a pretty good crew in this amazing city, but let's keep being mindful to love and serve one another. He once stated “Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?' Our response at SFRRC is that we're trying to make life a little better.
With our sincere gratitude to you all for your help in the above. The weather looks amazing, so perhaps get out on a run. #letsdothis, everybody!
Nothing changes regarding group runs — they remain canceled until further notice and the City's Public Health Order for residents to STAY HOME continues. When outside for a walk or run, please keep vigilant to maintain physical distancing of at least six feet from other people, avoid groups, and cover your face.
This grand new adventure is upon us. #2021 Let's make it a very good one. ✌🏼️❤️
P.S. It is with joy that we bring this uplifting story to you. We held back on sharing immediately because we needed to be attentive to the coronavirus situation/health orders that were beginning. But, in the first half of March last year, Chau Smith completed her quest of running a marathon in each of the 50 States... at the Big Island International Marathon (replete with waterfalls, surfers, lava beaches, sea spray, and rain forest) with all of her family present.
Club members: We'll keep you posted with weekly emails and updates when available.
What are your fitness/running goals? Join our SFRRC community to get connected during this shelter-in-place. We are hosting live "Athlete's Lab / Yoga for Runners" sessions via Zoom on Wednesday evenings for Club Members and your guests. And if you need to go outside for a run or walk, we're having a running "challenges" happening often. They are good fun! Plus, get an SFRRC running shirt and new mask (usable for running) that we've worked with Boco Gear on!
And after these days of solo running are over, we look forward to having you join us, San Francisco's largest running club, on the streets (track and trails too) of our city, for our happy hours, educational club nights, breakfasts and more! Whether you are training for a 5k or marathon or just want to run with some good/kind people, the San Francisco Road Runners are with you.
We typically run five times a week: Saturday for our Club Runs (75+ runners), Tuesday nights at Kezar Track, Wednesday nights from Sports Basement-Presidio, Thursday nights along the Embarcadero, and Sunday mornings on trails in Marin. Now over 500 members (as of January 2019) of all ages and training paces from 7:00 min/mile to 11:00 min/mile, you'll find plenty running at your
Train or qualify for Boston with us or train for San Francisco or one of the World Marathon Majors or another destination race or one of your choice. It’s way more fun and a lot easier with others... especially the long runs.
SFRRC's inaugural Running Camp took place in early May of 2019 in Occidental and its surrounding trails/roads and the Sonoma coast... kicking-off on the lovely Kortum trail.
SFRRC Book Club - we read four books in 2019 and they began again in February 2020!
