What we're about

Welcome to A SNAIL'S PACE RUNNING CLUB (ASPRC), Brea Chapter! This is the place to go for Brea Snail's Pace Running Club Members and others who would like to run and socialize with us, and hopefully join our great club! The Brea Snails Meet Up site will keep you up to speed (whatever speed you're comfortable with) on all Club runs, social stuff and other running-related events.

We run for many different reasons, with varied abilities and in many different ways, but we love to hang out and experience this little bit of life together. This group is created for people to meet and to share running routes, schedules, tips, experiences, and other social events. We are not professionals, we just want to create a fun environment for people to run and train together. We look forward to seeing you soon.

You don't have to be an ASPRC club member to join this Meetup group and run with us, but we think that when you see how much fun we have together, you'll wanna join our great club!

If you would like to check us out by running with us for a bit and getting to know us before officially joining the club, please do...its no charge. If and when you do join, there is just a small $35 annual fee, which provides many additional benefits such as merchandise discounts at ASP Running Shops, race discounts, club swag, monthly club dinner meetings and much more!

Speed Training/Track Workout

Fullerton College Track Field

Meet at the Fullerton Courthouse to run together to Fullerton College Track. There is usually a good amount of us on the track between 6:00-7:00, so don't worry if you are running late -you can hop into the workout at any time! Warm-up and cool down around the track. -- Get some speed work in while it's still cool out! Track work out using Yasso 800s. Start with four 800 Yassos and then add 1 Yasso 800 each week. ------------------------------------------- What is Yasso800? Yasso 800s are a popular workout among runners who are trying to achieve a specific marathon goal. The name "Yasso" comes from Bart Yasso, the chief running officer at Runner's World magazine, who popularized this workout. Here's how to do Yasso 800s: •Take your marathon goal time in hours/minutes and convert this to minutes/seconds. For example, if your marathon goal is 3 hours and 45 minutes then convert that to 3 minutes and 45 seconds. •Try to run 800 meters (approximately 1/2 mile) in your converted time (3:45 in this example). •Recover after each 800 by jogging or walking for the same amount of time (again, 3:45 in this example) Come join the fun!
