Sunday June 7th, our meeting location is the WEST entrance of Kezar Stadium, at 10am. It is the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon by the Warming Hut so we are going to take our run over to Golden Gate Park instead. See you Sunday!
We Live Here, We Run Here
Officially established in 2001, our club has members in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s who like to run hard and play hard. We are united by our enthusiasm for running, and we invite both novices and experienced athletes to join us. But more importantly, we love the friendships that we've made and the great times that we've had running in SF and across the state.
Well folks, with sorrow-filled tears and heavy hearts, the time has come to say goodbye to Hans, as he leaves us for Iowa. We’re seeing him off at SF’s token tiki bar, TRAD’R SAMS, this Friday, May 22nd.
Hans selected this joint (dive bar, tiki themed, Outer Richmond) because it was the location of his 1st ever GGRC event 5 years ago. And for those of you that don’t know Hans, he’s the large bald man with the vocal decibel levels of a Vegas DJ and the thighs of a German beer wench. He’s been a HUGE part of GGRC since he joined almost 5 years ago: a past President, Race Coordinator, honorary mascot, track cheerleader, and much more. Let’s send him off right.
Cue the drumroll, please, for our Aaaaapril Haaaaaaaappy Hourrrrrrrr (insert sounds of drum rollllls and human excitement)…
We will be holding our April Happy Hour at Amante SF in North Beach! We dare you to find a better opportunity to meet back up with the people you brushed clean, bare elbows with at our Annual Banquet and rehash the bad decisions we all made?! (Michael Howland I’m looking at you, and frankly it’s hard to look you in the eye right now.)
Nestled in the heart of North Beach, Amante is one of San Francisco’s best kept secrets. With an inexpensive small-plate menu by Chubby Noodle, delicious cocktails, & fun bartenders, Amante has something for everyone – sports on 6 TVs, plush comfortable bar stools, and heated outdoor dining. Hope to see you all there!
WHEN: Friday, April 24th, 6pm
WHERE: Amante SF (North Beach) – 570 Green St

*If you do choose to partake in a normal Sunday Run from Crissy Field, look for Emily Mueller and other GGRC members to run with!
