What is a Rare Bird?
We are a San Francisco-based training club that swims, bikes, runs, and has fun. Our birds have goals from first half marathon, nth Ironman, staying in shape, to saying pfffttt to all that training and just enjoying some post race nectar with the flock. We are ‘average joes’ shaking off rust, to bad-ass competitors gunning to win.
Regular training is group workouts twice a week (speed and long). For key races we make season schedules, add self directed workouts, and hold more targeted group trainings. While we plan workouts, show maps, give tips, etc., this is NOT a pay for play club. You come along and join the flock on your free will.
While we don't officially fundraise, we do value the power of the community and partner with groups like Team Cancer Sucks. If you are interested in flying together (whether it is hosting an event, showing up to your date auction, looking for cross-promotion), or just want to chat, send a note: firstname.lastname@example.org. Ca-Caw!
We are endurance and fun junkies' athletes
The thinking man and woman's athlete. Found in small groups bonding over swim, bike, run, (transition), (nutrition), (fun). Join for common camaraderie, sense of overall accomplishment, and a rockin body.
The classic endurance athlete. Can be seen in parks, bay fronts, city roads, and old school tracks. A pair of shoes, some will, and the right bird seed can enable anyone to start out as a running bird. Come with sneakers, leave with wings.
The purist endurance athlete. Guided by their unconditional love for the open road and their cycling machine. Join the rolling flock for long rides, beautiful scenery, epic climbs, and downhill bombs.
The adrenaline athlete. Can be found smoking cigars late evening, sipping rye whiskey, and waxing poetic about defying death. Then, getting up early next morning to kick ass at full speed. Mud, ski, glacier, hill, music, sail. Bring it.
Come out and train today!
