Every month we have our Second Saturday racewalks(SSR) around Green Lake in Seattle, Washington.
At times there are conflicts with more formal races or other events so check periodically here to see the latest schedule. We usually move the second Saturday up or back a week depending on the other events rather than eliminate these.
This is an informal race of 2.8 miles on a paved path. Meet at the south side of the Evans Pool Community Center building, next to the outdoor basketball court, at 8:45. Race begins at 9:00 AM. We meet all year, rain or shine. Check your calendar for dates of each second Saturday of the month. (Click here for location diagram)
Clinics for beginners are held on the same dates as the races at 10 AM after the 9:00 race at the same location. Meet at the outdoor basketball courts as we use the lines on the court as part of the clinic. (See diagram link above.) Fee is $5 one time. Come as often as you like. Please call Steve at 206-387-7639 for advance reservation. If no one calls or shows up by 10:10 or so, we keep moving for a warmdown lap around the lake. Wear shorts if possible that don't cover the knees as knee straightening is a key rule of racewalking. If it's cold, wear snug leg fitting pants, eg. tights, lycra, etc. so knees can be viewed somewhat. Thanks.
2022 Schedule, local events
Several Oregon events coming up in spring and summer but judges are at a premium.
