Next Race:Age-Handicapped 4-Miler

Come celebrate Nation's Birthday! This race uses an unusual age-handicapped format, in which older runners start early and younger runners start late. All runners receive prizes since all participants are encouraged to contribute unique used items to the prize pool.

New Monday Night Tempo Run Added!

Have you thought about adding a tempo run to your weekly schedule but the speed requirements for the High Performance Training group are a bit beyond your current skill level? If so we’ve got a group for you! Coach Joe Emerson will lead a new weekly Monday night tempo run! The group kicks off its first run on Monday, June 6 at 6:30pm and will meet at North Meade Street Park (same spot as SLR).

The tentative schedule:

6/6: 2x10 minute tempo intervals with a 3-minute jog in between.
6/13: 15-minute tempo
6/20: 2x10 minute tempo intervals with 3-minute jog/rest
6/27: 15 minute tempo

The tempo run is a great way to build strength and speed and to get you used to running at your race pace.

For more information please e-mail Joe.  

We hope to run with you on Monday nights!
