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.

All Groups

4800 Meters Continuous. Think of this as 6 x 800. Run the first 800 at your goal marathon pace. Then run each successive 800 meters four seconds faster than the previous one. So every 2 laps, you speed up by 2 seconds per lap.

Clearly you need to pay attention for this. If you do it right, by the end, you should be going faster than threshold pace. The last mile will not be easy but with taper and all that (for those of you running Boston) it should be easy

Anyone NOT running Boston

Same as above but after the 4800, jog easily for 2 laps (in the outer lane) and then do 2 x 800 at INTERVAL pace with an easy 400 meter jog between

Ultras:  Do you have the mojo?
