Start Wednesdays on the right foot
These 6 am runs will be the highlight of your week – No sign up needed. Meet in the WAC Lobby as we leave promptly!
Join aspiring Olympian and Cascade Run Club founder Yon Yilma, winner of the 2013 Seattle Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, for 6 am runs on Wednesday morning this summer. These complimentary workouts are open to all WAC members and will start from the Clubhouse lobby and last about one hour.
Yon’s passion is sharing the running life and showing others how fun running with a team can be. He enjoys helping runners of all levels achieve their goals while building lasting friendships. Yon grew up in Edmonds and ran at the University of Alaska Anchorage, consistently one of the best Division II men’s cross-country teams in the nation.
He took up marathons after college and won his debut event, the 2013 Rock ‘n’ Roll in Seattle. He placed second at Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona in 2015.
Yon is currently focused on coaching others and training to make a USA World or Olympic team in the marathon.
Runs take place every Wednesday through August.
