Facebook Group

I have received a lot of requested to create a Facebook Group Page which will allow members the opportunity to communicate, share their successes and post anything else you want to. Although the group is public, I will only be accepting the request from members or alumni. Please keep details related to specific locations of runs or happy hours, one the "down low."  You can click on the Facebook Group icon above or search for "Black Flag Running Club Group." 

 More social media & future sponsorship  


We are always scouting out new opportunities to improve the club and bring new benefits to our members. As I am sure you can imagine our social media presence is particularly important to potential sponsors. If you are so inclined we would love to have you follow up on our social media channels, tags us and use some of our hashtags: #BlackFlagRunningClub and @BlackFlagRunningClub. Every post helps. Thank you in advance for your help in building the next big thing to hit San Diego's running community.

As Always

We'll usually arrive 15-20 minutes before each group run to make ourselves available for questions, tips, whatever.  We also plan to stay afterward for as long as it takes to do the same.  This means I'll be at Tuesday runs around 5:45 PM and the Saturday runs at 7:15 AM.

Please let us know if you have questions.

Ciao for now!

Coach Aaron



Detailed Meeting Locations

This is where we will meet on Tuesday and/or Saturday. Don’t get lost :)


Shelter Island, Shoreline Park / Fishing Pier

1720 Shelter Island Dr, San Diego, CA 92101

Will meet in the SW end of the fishing pier parking lot, which is about 1/2 way down the Island (heading South).  Please refrain from parking along the West side of the parking lot near the Pier & Store.


*This is a public fishing pier and park which is busy in the early weekend mornings, and we simply cannot take over the entire place.  There is PLENTY OF PARKING along the entire lot of Shelter Island.  Please walk some if you have to.  It may even warm you up :)
