More than just a store,
your personnel running and fitness coach
This idea was a dream of co-owner, Tim, back in 2010. The free training program is designed for novice runners who have never run a mile (or for folks who have had a very long hiatus) get into running shape. The program starts with runners and walkers completing one mile on the first day, and then progressing from there until their fitness goals are achieved. for group runs and participants are provided with an individualized custom training schedule to follow on the other days. We offer Running 101 Clinics featuring Dr. Nathan Moore, of on injury prevention, nutrition and shoe and gear selection. Our staff offers guidance and coaching throughout your training and you will have access to all that West Seattle Runner has to offer. Twice annually, there are half marathon training sessions, usually in January and August. The group dynamic has shown to be a very helpful support system for most participants. It has been a wonderful experience to watch so many people become endurance athletes. Since we started, we have helped hundreds of new runners successfully cross the finish line of a half marathon.
