We’re one of the few clubs in San Diego that keeps their doors open for a full two (2) weeks into the training season for you to have a chance to come check us out! Below you will see the group meeting schedule for the first 2 weeks so you can join us as you wish.

  • On the First Tuesdaythe coaches will be onsite early at 5:15pm to answer questions for anyone who missed the main Orientation the week prior. Spread the word, bring a friend!
  • On the First Saturday, for our Weekend Warriors who can’t make Tuesday nights, the coaches will be onsite at 7:30am to answer questions for anyone who missed the main Orientation and the Re-orientation. The club will be in operation (and will have left for their run at 7:00am) so you will see and meet the team as they return from their run ~8:45-9:00am
  • On the Second / Last Saturday, we will have one last “Open House” Orientation including a group run, social potluck and clinic “Introduction to Long Distance Running”. Learn more here.
