Running Programs

No cost to participate, just show up for the runs. Non-members are encouraged to learn about the club by joining in these runs. Members of all groups have weekend runs which are organized over social media and email.

  • Morning Group: Early morning training group usually meets at 6 AM Monday to Friday. Structured training program often includes two workouts each week. Usually a fast pace, but there is frequent re-grouping and various sub-group paces.

  • Morning Moderates: Usually meets same time and place as the regular morning group, but Mods have a more moderate pace and generally shorter distances (via shortcuts). Often will do a reduced version of planned workouts.

  • VDOTO2 Group: VDOTO2 certified coach Will Small provides individualized and group training plans determined by the abilities of each athlete - year-round training with daily workout plans. Members of the group (and others) commonly run on Tuesday and Thursday evenings with a wide range of paces, sub-groups, and re-grouping.
