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.

Ring in the 2016 running season with a mostly flat 5K through Cambridge, from Central Square towards Harvard Square and back, followed by some great craic!

We meet on the indoor track at 7:00.  The Tufts Indoor track is located in the Gantcher Center on College Ave.  In order to get into the building, you must be on the door list for SRR Track.  If you've already paid for track for 2016, you will be on the list.  If not, I must add you manually to the list.  Please let me know (preferably at least a day ahead of time) if you will be coming and are not on the list.  All newcomers to SRR track can come and try out a practice or two before deciding if track is for them.

You will want to have your warmup done (or mostly done) before we gather

Please be aware the Tufts has recently added parking gates to the large parking lot across from the Track facility.  You have to pay for parking if you wish to park there.   I have a message into the facilities director to ask about passes but have not yet heard back..
