Participants will begin at different levels of fitness and are encouraged to complete each training session to the best of their ability. Training sessions are held together, but runners are encouraged to complete our running routes to the best of their ability Participants will be introduced to interval training, long run, and hill workouts. Weekly sessions will consist of a 15 - 30 min class covering training, fitness, and technique, followed by a 30-minute group run and workout session. A training plan will be provided to you at the first session outlining the entire clinic including weekly presentations on varied running topics including nutrition, injury prevention, race prep and more! Participants need to be comfortable with running 10km before starting the program. If you have never run before we recommend our Learn to Run 5K program to start.
