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.
Volunteers are needed to support our runners at the SRR Elite Water Stop at the 30K mark of the Boston Marathon. During the day we'll need at least two spotters and two people working the table at all times. With enough help, folks should be able to rotate in relatively short shifts. Please use this link to sign up on our volunteer spreadsheet.
This year the fourth wave leaves Hopkinton at 11:15am, so it will be a nice long afternoon on the course. Roads in Newton will re-open at 4:15pm, so that's about the time we'll start packing things up. Please make sure to dress comfortably. Best to bring a sweatshirt or jacket in case of cool or windy weather, and sunglasses and sunscreen for warm and sunny. Bring drinks and snacks for yourself as well. Feel free to invite friends to join you, with the understanding that you are still responsible for getting our runners what they need.
Please feel free to contact Scott for more information!

***Note that if you feel restless, you have my blessing to turn up the jets on the final 1600 but it is neither expected nor needed. If you intend to do this, I would run the first 800 at LT and then pick it up second half
Where do I sign up for SRR membership/track?
Congratulations to Shaun Miller who recently conquered the Vermont 50 Miler shattering a personal best by over half an hour on a challenging course.
This is just the latest in a growing SRR Ultra movement that has been going for a while but really seems to have gained momentum this year. Just a cursory scan of this years results shows:
