Starting January 4th , West Seattle Runner (WSB sponsor) will be offering a free teen running group every Saturday at 11 am for those in high school and college. This will be a great place to meet other youth who enjoy running, train for races like 5ks and half marathons, and improve overall fitness.

Lori McConnell, co-owner of West Seattle Runner, wanted to start this group because “As a long distance runner, the owner of a running store, and a therapist for youth and athletes, I saw the need. I have heard from teens that they would like to run more, but in the dark winter, they are limited because they don’t want to run alone. I also want to introduce the joy of running to youth. It is a healthy activity for them to spend time doing, it gives a sense of belonging, and it increases confidence. Also running is a way to build good mental health and helps with learning. I wanted an opportunity to connect like-minded teens in a social way.”

A Facebook group called “West Seattle Teen Running Group” will be the central place for future information about this upcoming running group. If you have questions, contact Lori McConnell at lori@westseattlerunner.com or call West Seattle Runner at (206)-938-0545.
