Momentum Northwest athletes hail from all over the Seattle and Eastside area, and as such our training venues are equally diverse in an attempt to accommodate all comers. Below are maps and descriptions of what venues we use for our workouts; they correspond to the locations listed on our Calendar for each training session.
For all venues, take care to protect your valuables by locking your cars and keeping all bags and other tempting-looking items hidden under seats. Or better yet, leave them at home!
Montlake Community Center
We meet in the parking lot at Montlake Community Center. From here we venture out into the city, running for the Arboretum, the UW Campus, Freemont, and elsewhere.
Greenlake/ Woodland Park
Meet at the long parking strip adjacent to Greenlake Way at the south end of the playing fields, near the junction of 50th Ave and Stone Way (see dropped pin on map below) This is usually for drop-off when the van is heading to the mountains or another spot in Seattle for training.
When training at Woodland we meet in the upper woodland parking area off of 50th closer to Aurora Ave. North - across from Whitman Ave. N
Meet at the parking area between the playground and waterfront. Here, we typically use the paved loops for roller skiing
