NEW USATF CLUB: Introducing the Marina Del Rey Running Club!

LDR Chair Wayne Joness had a chance to meet up with one of the newer USATF clubs, the Marina del Rey Running Club, on Wednesday, April 27, for an evening run. Coached by USATF certified running coach Marissa Tiamfook, this club meets for runs on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm, and Saturday mornings at 9:00 am, in front of speciality running store The Starting Line.

Even if you have run in the Marina are before, you may be surprised by the beautiful paths the 5K and 10K loops take you along. Runners also get to swing out by the boats in the basin before returning to The Starting Line.

This is a cheerful, positive group, coached by Tiamfook, with help from Harry Mitterbauer of HM Sports Performance and Kris. If you are looking for a great oceanside run, meet up with this group and hang around afterwards for post-run refreshments.
