What we're about

EventHorizon, endurance sport is an all FREE community of endurance enthusiasts of ALL levels. Many of us participate in the sport of triathlon (from sprint to Ironman) so we enjoy running and appreciate the beauty and benefits of all other types of self-propelled motion. The distinguishing benefit of this group is that it is organized by experienced AND Certified Multisport coaches living in the Boston area. There's no agenda or manifesto. We meet up, train, socialize and that's it! EventHorizon is an official Ironman Triathlon club partner for 2013 which means awesome benefits!

We motivate each other and also want to try to have a purely social meetup at least monthly. Whether you just want to get in shape, you're a seasoned athlete, or you want to take a swing at open water swimming, your first full/half marathon, triathlon, or train for a century bike ride; this is the group for you!

Swimmers, cyclists, runners, triathletes, newbies and supporters are all welcome. The organizers seek to partner with Team EnVision, TIMIRCE, Charles River Wheelman (CRW) and other local endurance groups to have well attended meet ups of athletes of a full range of abilities. We have sponsors that were strategically chosen to help endurance enthusiasts mitigate the costs of new equipment, products and apparel.

The group also has a companion Forum (http://forum.eventhorizon.tv) that we use for interaction on related topics and a Facebook Fan Page (https://www.facebook.com/EventHorizon.TV). Subscribe for exclusive training content and networking with athletes. We also have a companion website with a myriad of training resources, videos, and links located at http://EventHorizon.Tv

Outdoor Track Running with TMIRCE

McCurdy Track at Harvard Collesium

Every Tuesday at 6:30, if you need a track workout, we'll link up with TMIRCE, (The Most Informal Running Club Ever). This is an open track workout. Don't let the RSVPs fool you, there are usually over 20 people there! No matter your ability level, you'll be able to go at your own pace and meet other endurance enthusiasts. The group usually goes out for beer afterwards. Look for me or Andy Marx. Click here for the track location. (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=mccurdy+track&ie=UTF8&hl=en&hq=McCurdy+Track&hnear=McCurdy+Track,+Boston,+Suffolk,+Massachusetts+02134&ll=42.365639,-71.127269&spn=0.006191,0.011458&t=h&z=17&iwloc=A) We meet at the area on the track marked by the red X. It's a 400 Meter Track. We run intervals (200, 400, 800...etc) with a recovery pace in between. The workout will be explained to everyone before the start. We often run at 5k pace or faster. If you would like to know your 5k pace click this link for the Interval pace calculator (http://www.heartbreakhill.org/trackpace.htm). If you're newer to running or nursing and injury slow your pace accordingly and/or take extended recoveries. Hope to see you there! Here is Active.com's reasons to love the Oval! 3 Reasons to Love The Oval 1) PROPER PACING On a treadmill, the belt keeps you on pace, even if your energy fades. "You're just keeping up with what's moving underneath you," says Marius Maianu, a clinical exercise physiologist at the Cooper Clinic in Dallas. By contrast, hitting a certain pace on the track requires more mental effort. 2) POSITIVE PEER PRESSURE At a group workout, you're likely to push harder than you might on your own. You're also less likely to give up when the going gets tough. Other runners at the workout can spot sloppy form that might be slowing you down. 3) THE FUN FACTOR Track may be about speed, but at most workouts organized by running clubs, the vibe stays social and supportive. The track is a great place to meet new running buddies—the kind who help you get out the door in epic conditions, or tough out a long run.
