Women's Tempo Training Run Every Other Saturday Sawyer Camp, San Mateo

Join the Best Running Club in the Bay Area - Go WOW Team!

Go WOW Team loves all women who strive to be athletic. We walk, we run walk, and we run. Saturdays at Sawyer Camp focus on running FAST and include our new partner, the Bay Area Women's Racing Federation.

If you want to try out some speed in your workout, come check us out. We are mainly older (40 - 70 at present) so speed is a relative thing...

Sawyer Camp is a favorite and, once you've been here you'll see why. It's only about 20 minutes south of San Francisco and about 30 minutes north of San Jose so the location is quite convenient for almost all of us.

Be sure to check the details for getting here. People get lost! Click here for the link.

WOW currently meets here every two weeks.

Sawyer Camp offers a scenic, safe trail, and has the miles marked. What more could we ask for! The terrain is varied enough that it doesn't get boring, yet it is mainly flat (slightly rolling) and, the surface is paved with packed dirt on the side. We currently run or run/walk. Our goal is 60 minutes or more. The pace is mid-distance speed. We're trying to work on our tempo pace.

You can run or run/walk but you want to be able to move at a good clip with the intention to push the pace.

WOW Saturday runs focus on intermediate, experienced running (or run/walking) for women while our Sunday workouts include walkers, walk/runners, and runners from novice to experienced ability.

Our Saturday Sawyer Camp group is geared to a goal oriented woman who already has some speed and race experience and is able to make a commitment to herself and her team mates to push each other.

Our Sunday Group has a broader focus and encourages all abilities. On Sundays, WOW welcomes 20 minute/mile fitness walkers through 8 minute/mile marathoners. If you can move for 60 minutes, at any pace, you will feel comfortable in our Sunday Group.

If you are not sure that you will fit in, please contact Coach Stephanie at [masked] because we want all women to join WOW and feel welcome.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
