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. 

John Brust

President, SFRRC
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 pace.

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!

If you're not a club member, learn about the benefits & become a member today! Start getting our emails, connect with our running community, get run locations (group runs returning soon, fingers crossed), race discounts, shoe and store discounts, coaching/workouts, training schedules, and more.

In 2018, we begin our Member of the Month to recognize someone who brings a particularly positive contribution to the club... it might be from a comeback story, or their joyful/helpful presence at club runs, or they inspire others with their beautiful spirit, or they trained with us and ran one exceptional race.

We invite our all our San Francisco Road Runners Club members to join us on Strava (a joyful social network for runners). Think of it as a way to encourage one another and keep track of your running at the same time. Plus, look back at how you did on previous runs, workouts, and races.

More SFRRC info on Strava HERE . Regardless, we hope to see you soon. Please join us!

Club Member of the Month

This introduction is an easy one and there are many layers of good. Highest level: We are deeply grateful to the great Mr. Bill Summer… for the peace and joy he has brought to the San Francisco Road Runners (for nine years). His life from our perspective seems to be about making the lives of those he comes in contact with just a little better. Bill is our coach on the trails and in life. He leads us by example even when not trying with his even/negative splits in his races to simply getting out the door for the miles to his sincere tenderness and thoughtfulness with others which comes naturally and with ease. Thank you for making this such an extraordinary time for our club and for so many of us, Bill.

What advice would you give to runners or those training for a race eventually?
"Be consistent, be patient. The race is a celebration of all the training you've done, but you have to make it to the starting line to have that celebration."
