Eastside Runners Club
The Seattle area running club for every type of runner
40 years running (founded 1981)
A featured race is a local running event that the club designates each month. The races aren't put on by ESR but sometimes we get discounts for members. They're optional of course, but do consider participating. Races can be an interesting new experience for you, or provide you with a motivational goal to train toward, or simply be a fun time with your ESR friends. Hope to see you on the run!

April 24 - Mt Si Relay and Trail Races This month the featured run is ESR's signature race. You can volunteer using this link; if you volunteer and run, you can get a 20% discount for the half marathon. Contact Russ (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the discount code.
May 22 - Girls on the Run 5K (select "Community Runner" for the "Site/School" dropdown) A 5K through the streets of Renton ending on the Renton Memorial Stadium track.

Enjoy a fun run while your entry fee goes to supporting this worthwhile organization.
