Welcome to the website of the Somerville Road Runners, Somerville Massachusetts' oldest running club. Bordering Boston and Cambridge, we're a motley crew that works hard, but doesn't let that get in the way of having a good time. SRR is a charitable, non-profit organization that sponsors many events a year including weekly runs, track workouts, annual races and even competitive but delicious cook-offs! Our club welcomes new members of all abilities. Read on to find out what we've been up to lately.

All Indoor Track Runners:

I need to have your name on the door list before you come to track.  If you paid for track in 2016 or for 2017, your name will automatically be on the list.  If not, I need you to let me know you are coming.  Drop me an email at and please don't wait until Tuesday afternoon to do it.  Everyone gets to try a couple of indoor workouts before deciding whether to go forward with it. 

Please note that if you pay for 2017 membershp and track now, you will be covered for these last two month of 2016 as well


A note about the indoor workouts going forward:

Tufts has just resurfaced their indoor track this year.   To preserve it, they are asking us to run in lane 4 of the indoor track at least for the time being.  One lap in lane 4 is approximately 220 meters.  Therefore  I have recalculated all of your paces for the actual length of that lane.  This chart lists paces by number of laps rather than by distance.  Here is the alternate INDOOR Pace Chart
