Seattle Chapter

Slow Boat Tavern
5701 Rainier Ave S,
Seattle, WA 98118
Captain: John Spoden

For Seattle Chapter Captain John, beer came before running.

Two beers changed his view of beer forever, back in the early 1980's: Anchor Steam and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. It was in 2008 when his love of beer started to catch up with him: his doctor told him to run 3 miles in 30 minutes, 5 times a week. From there, he started running 5Ks, then 10Ks, a half marathon and the Chicago Marathon in 2009 (a barely sub-4 hour time in his hometown).

Why Mikkeller Run Club? Simple: John's grandfather emigrated from Denmark to Chicago in 1912. John returned to Denmark in 2015 and found kindred spirits in Mikkeller locations all over Copenhagen. MRC Seattle runs for the same reasons we drink beer: to celebrate life and feel a connection with one another.
