Run Fit

Our 9-week RUN FIT program is based on the walk/run principal of building mileage and endurance.  This puts less strain on your muscles in the early stages of training and allows you to safely progress from level to level. Whether you go fast, or slow, whether you walk or run – or both, you benefit by covering more miles per week.

The goal of RUN FIT is to cover the distance of a 5K (3.1 miles) and run for the majority of it.  Expect to still be incorporating walk breaks into your runs throughout this program and to complete a progressively longer weekend run. This benefits your body and mind as we adapt to incremental increases every week!

Run Far

RUN FAR is a 14-24-week program to prepare you for longer distances and races like half marathons and full marathons. RUN FAR is open to all levels of runners!

From the start of the RUN FAR program, runners and walkers are grouped with others of similar abilities and goals.

The RUN FAR weekly training schedule includes 3 different workouts, each designed to help the runner with pacing and endurance. Interval training, (speed workouts), tempo (pace running), hill running (strength), and progressively long runs (endurance) are combined with rest days and cross training to meet the goal results of the distance runner!

Intermediate/Maintenance Half and Full Marathon training program option
