Welcome to the website of the Somerville Road Runners, Somerville Massachusetts' oldest running club. Bordering Boston and Cambridge, we're a motley crew that works hard, but doesn't let that get in the way of having a good time. SRR is a charitable, non-profit organization that sponsors many events a year including weekly runs, track workouts, annual races and even competitive but delicious cook-offs! Our club welcomes new members of all abilities. Read on to find out what we've been up to lately.
Tuesday December 10 - 7:00 PM
Cruise Intervals. 1600s at THRESHOLD pace with 1:00
rests. The number you do depends upon you recent weekly
- 0-39 mpw: 3
- 40-49 mpw: 4
- 50-59 mpw: 5
- 60+ mpw: 6
Here's an option for those of you who just LOVE to go fast.
If you wish, before the final 1600, you may optionally take
double the rest (2:00) and run the last one hard. Like
faster than 5k race pace hard. Totally up to you.
Congratulations to Shaun Miller who recently conquered the Vermont 50 Miler shattering a personal best by over half an hour on a challenging course.
