2015 Membership status
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.
When: Sunday December 6th @ 8AM
Where: Starts in Nashua NH, finishes in Lawrence MA
27 Miles, 5 Legs, 2 States, and 1 River... an invitational relay race that includes up to twenty local running clubs. SRR typically enters about 100 runners (20 teams of five) and the club covers all registration fees. It's a fun day of running and cheering that starts in Nashua NH and finishes at the Claddagh Pub in Lawrence MA. Stay for the after-party and enjoy live music, loads of awards (traditionally bricks), and re-cap the day with your friends and teammates.
Current SRR members can SIGN UP FOR MILL CITIES any time before November 13th, 2015!
The Somerville Homeless Coalition is one of the many great recipients of proceeds from this event. And because we enter so many runners in the relay, volunteers are a crucial element to the success of the race. Please indicate if you can volunteer - every relay team should be volunteering at some point during the event.
For even more info on this event please visit the Mill Cities Relay website or you can Like It on facebook.

If you've already paid for track in 2015 or for 2016, you will be on the list. If not, I must add you manually to the list. Please let me know (preferably at least a day ahead of time) if you will be coming and are not on the list. All newcomers to SRR track can come and try out a practice or two before deciding if track is for them.
