The Y Run Club meets Thursday nights (6:00pm) at Rogers High School track, Saturday mornings (7:30am) at the Mel Korum YMCA in Puyallup and Sunday mornings (8am) at various interesting locations. We can’t have our run without our coffee, so we always make time to get together at a nearby coffee shop after every run. If you are coming to run with us for the first time, let us know!
We accommodate all levels of runners, from newbies to ultramarathoners. Those who want to run a bit longer show up earlier than the posted times so that we all finish together and can enjoy our coffee hour.
We have minimal dues to cover the cost of insurance and to pay for the forum – dues for 2010 are $6.00 per person. Access to the forum is granted after you have joined us for a few runs and have paid the dues. (You do not have to be a Y member to join our group). Our after-run coffee gatherings serve as club meetings and we also have the occasional potluck, sometimes just for fun, other times to discuss club business.
We host one marathon, and one 50K each year – these are no-frill races with minimal support and maximum fun. We also volunteer at the Tacoma City Marathon and host the 50 mile aid station at the Cascade Crest 100 mile race.
Our main goal is to share our love of running and have a good time together – come join us!
