Who we are

We are women in the greater Seattle area who run trails. We welcome all abilities and interests to our group, from novice to ultra runner. Many women don't run trails as much as they'd like due to lack of opportunity, company, security, and/or experience. We change that. It started with one person who wanted someone her own speed to run with, and it's now grown to over 550 women who have run with the group at some time. Many of us become instant friends on the trails.


Run with us

We have social runs every Saturday morning at 8 am. No one is left behind. On these runs you can try us out, push yourself, meet more runners, or just run trails without maps or worries. After about a mile of warmup and mixing, we divide into groups of different speeds which regroup at each intersection. The vibe is part workout, part nature outing, part party. Coffee and chat nearby afterwards! We run unless it's too snowy to drive or it's too windy to be safe in the trees. And we don't run the second Saturdays in summer, when the Cougar Mountain Trail Running Series occurs. Our runs are currently always at the same location: Cougar Mountain Sky Country trailhead.


We organize weekday runs and weekend adventures. We also organize several trips a year to trail races, with all of the advantages and none of the pressure of being on a team. We have a private Facebook group for posting runs and ideas. We host occasional clinics about running technique, nutrition, and race preparation. We also have an HHRG Menvitational each October, when the other 50% of the runners can run with us.


This group is free of charge.
