BRRC Winter Middle Distance Training Program

After running numerous 5K and 10K races, runners often wonder what is necessary to run longer distances successfully. Join members of the Baltimore Road Runners Club to learn how to expand your range of distance and conquer the 10 mile and possibly the half-marathon distance.

The group will meet twice a week over a 12 week period and learn the secrets of winter running. Training will include topics such as developing a race strategy, clothing needs, pacing, hydration, tapering and other secrets from veteran runners that are successful
at 5K, 10K and Half marathon distances.

The program will culminate with a 10 mile race where the Baltimore Road Runners Club will pay your entry fee if you run as part of the BRRC Team. (See details at bottom of page)

Day/Time – The program will begin on Thursday, Dec 6th 2012 and run until Thurs, Feb 21st 2013. Thursday evening track workouts will run from 6:30-8:30pm and Saturday morning distance runs starting will start at 8:00am

Location – For this program we meet at 2 locations to introduce runners to speedwork as well as distance training as follows:

Thursday Evening 6:30pm at the Goucher College track

Saturday morning 8:00am at Loch Raven Reservoir. Meet at the intersection of Morgan Mill Road and Loch Raven Drive.

    Hi. I have a couple of questions... - I guess it's OK if we can only make it to some of the trainings?

    - I'm not yet a member of the BRRC. Could I join the BRRC on Saturday, which I think I can attend? Thanks!

      I think it's at 8am. That's what it says on the BRRC site.

    I would really love to do this but I'm a newbie runner (only have one 5K under my belt) and not sure if I have the skill level for this.

    Hi Brittney, I'm probably only going to make it to the Saturday runs but I live in Federal Hill and can easily swing by and get you. No need for gas just the fact that I have to pick someone up will get me to the run. :)

    Let me know. I also I schedule some runs at night in the downtown area during the week. Due to work it will be difficult for me to make it for the Thursday track workouts. But they sound like fun.

      I might be able to fill in where Marty can't do it. I live in SE Baltimore, so it's slightly, but not terribly out of the way.

      November 26, 2012

    • Marty B.

      No problem. Looks like there are rides 'o plenty! So just add a note when you rsvp yes to any of the Saturday and we'll figure something out if we sync up. Good luck on the Thursday runs. They sound fun sorry I'm going to miss them.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
