What do you like about SCRunners?
I love the unpretentious nature of club members. SCR members include doctors, lawyers, corporate executives, members of law enforcement organizations, plumbers, instructors, and health care professions, but few, if any, care about what one does for a living, and a sense of respect for everyone pervades the club.
Although we are a running club, the social aspect is a huge reason why I have been a part of the club for almost two decades. I have made incredible friendships through this club, and I treasure the time that I am able to spend running with club members and chatting over coffee. However, this camaraderie extends beyond those weekly runs. Chances are you will find a friendly companion, or more, in the club for your next adventure; whether having a pint at a local brewery or traveling across the globe for a destination race, it is likely you can find an SCR willing and ready to join you.
Finally, I am grateful for all of the support and encouragement that I have received from the club. I became a much stronger runner as a result of this support, and the dedication and commitment of other club members has been truly inspiring in helping me to achieve my goals.
Weekly club events you normally participate in: Mostly just the Sunday marathon training runs, but also Thursday tempo runs before a board meeting, and an occasional Saturday run.
