Silver Spring Running Club

In the first of many collaborations, Silver Spring Inc is teaming up with Third Space Wellness to find out the demand in Silver Spring for another running club. We’re interested in getting together a weekly running club, most likely Sunday morning, that would allow non-runners to become runners, yet not want to kill themselves. In addition, established runners should have an opportunity to become better, as well as have opportunities to meet potential running/training partners.

To that end, we’ll be hosting two running get-togethers over the next month and we invite you to attend. We’ve also included a brief survey for you to fill out whether you can attend or not. We’d love to know whether you would like a running group like this in Silver Spring, as well as what would make it the best group for you.

Please take the survey here.

First Running Get Together

What: 4 miles along Sligo Creek Parkway
When : October 26th at 10:00 AM
Where: Meet at the corner of Wayne Avenue and Sligo Creek Parkway

Second Running Get Together

What: 2/4 miles along Sligo Creek Parkway
When : November 2nd at 10:00 AM
Where: Meet at the corner of Wayne Avenue and Sligo Creek Parkway

Thanks for your participation and we hope to see you there.

A DC Native, people say I'm rude and abrasive; I say I'm passionate. I've been working in marketing since 2005. My brothers and I paid Geppi's rent through the 80s and 90s. My relief at an indoor wavepool never materializing in Silver Spring is balanced by my disappointment that City Place has dozens of shuttered storefronts. I love what you've done with your hair.

    I love this idea. I’m a member of Montgomery County Road Runners Club (MCRRC.org) and usually run twice a week with them. However, I’m always looking to meet/run with new people. I’m going to try to make it to the Nov 2nd outing.

      I had hoped you would be interested, Brian. I look forward to seeing you at the 11/2, and please spread the word. Ideally we can get different levels of runners into groupings, get food afterwards, and allow experienced runners to help out novices. Your vast experience would be a welcome addition!

    This is fantastic! Now only if we can shift the time a little earlier or a little later.

    Sounds cool, but Sundays at 10am is when I’m at church. I could do like 8am. Saturday mornings are better for me.

    I am a marathoner and looking to get back into running after becoming a first time mom 8 weeks ago. I am hoping to join you all both mornings. Is there parking near the meeting point?

      Woot! Definitely join us. There is a small parking lot at Silver Spring International School.
