Shawmont Running Club
Your Subtitle text

The Shawmont Running Club (SRC) is an unofficial co-ed group of folks who enjoy running and seem to play nice together.  Once a week 20-30 runners (usually) show up to cover distances from 5 miles to 20-plus.  Our name is taken from Roxborough's mile-long Shawmont Avenue hill run by many of the crew on any given Saturday.
WHERE:  We start at Northwestern Ave & Andorra Rd in Philadelphia, PA
               (north end of the Forbidden Drive trail in the Valley Green section of Fairmount Park)

WHEN:    From the 2nd Saturday in May through the 2nd Saturday in October we start at 7:30 a.m.
               From the 3rd Saturday in October through the 1st Saturday in May we start at 8:00 a.m.

FIVE MINUTE RULE:   We wait 5 minutes (not 6) for late-arrivals before taking off

ATTENDANCE:   Attendance is taken so we know who to pick on in the weekly run report updated on the web site each week
Approximately 25% of the runners each week are women.  Ages range from the 20's to the 70's.  All women are 29 or less.
Some in the club are competitive in their Age Group; most are mid-packers.  Training paces range from 7:00 to 10:00 minute/miles.  More than half of the regulars do at least one marathon a year.  There are a couple of ultra-marathoners and even a few triathletes. 
SRC has no dues and no rules.  We're just normal earth-people who enjoy each other's company during long runs.
