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.

GGRC May Happy Hour copy 2

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.

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.)
