We can’t make you better looking or smarter, but we might make you a little thinner, faster, or give you the stamina and support to run a race – whether it’s your first 5K or a marathon. Join us for a Saturday or Sunday training run (no membership required) and give us a try.
In addition, SqRR receives several non-qualified entries to the Boston Marathon. These are distributed to interested members who are active participants in club activities.
Lastly, you get to meet great new people at weekly training runs, races and monthly social events who share your interest and love for running.
