We Run The Streets! Come Join Our Club And Find Out How Much Fun Running Can Be!
If you’re a runner anywhere near the California Gold Coast, San Diego, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Malibu, you will want to check out the Gold Coast Runners Club. We are a group that takes running very seriously, but we manage to keep it fun, too. Everyone is welcome to join from beginners to advanced runners. We love to share ideas, discuss the ins and outs of running, and, generally talk the trash that goes on between people who love to run.
Sometimes we get a bit organized and alert our members to runs that are coming up, or running activities. Really, we are all just trying to find reasons to run. Our Facebook page is a great way to get to know us, if you are thinking about joining a club.
It’s also a good way to get the lay of the land as far as where to find great running spots in the area, to discover activities like local boot camps, and of course to keep up with organized runs in this part of the state. We all also enjoy trail runs, street running, and track workouts. And, like most runners we love to talk about running shoes, protein shakes, the thrill of the run, and how weird and funny runners can be, or should we just go ahead and say “crazy”?
Gold Coast Runners Club also has an every week meet-up called Wednesday Night Lights at 7:00, you guessed it, every Wednesday. We run about 6.42 miles around San Diego, which is not only fun, but also a fantastic way to get to know the city. Go to our Facebook page for some beautiful pictures taken during the night run.
One of the best reasons we can think of to be a member of a running club is the support and positive energy you can get from your peers. Running, like most athletic endeavors, requires focus, stamina, and discipline.Even seasoned runners sometimes run out of what it takes to put those shoes on and run. When you hit the wall, as they say, being able to talk about the problem with other runners is a perfect way to learn that you are not the only one who has ever felt a little overwhelmed. You are not the only one who has suffered an injury. Someone else out there has been in the same place you are and would be glad to be the one that gives you a leg up.
So, consider yourself invited, and we hope to see you soon at a Gold Coast Runners Club event. You can reach us at our message box on Facebook.
A Big Thank You!
At Gold Coast Runners we have been fortunate enough to have generous companies reach out to help our running club. We just wanted to take a moment and say thanks to those individuals.
The first company we would like to thank is SellWay San Diego, they are an automotive company and they buy cars from people. We put out the word that we needed help registering our team to some races as we didn't have the funds. SellWay took it upon themselves to make a nice donation, and for that we are eternally grateful.
The Next company we would like to acknowledge is the local Walmart in San Diego. They also gave us a fairly significant donation, and even provided running shoes to some people on the club. That's awesome!
Lastly, we would like to thank cash for cars San Diego a service that buys used cars for their contributions of beverages, and bibs for the team.
