With 2017 just around the corner, it’s time to start training again! We will offer two different groups, which you can learn about below.
(Runs from January 1st through February 4th)
This group will consist of people with a prior running background. While we will have middle school and high school runners, experienced elementary runners are welcome as well. The goal of this group is to get them to the start of their spring racing season fit, confident and with room to improve.
At the end of the training camp, all runners are encouraged to compete in the Vanderbilt High School Indoor Invitational on February 4th. While it is primarily a high school race, they will offer races for elementary and middle school runners as well. It will be a great chance to shake off some racing rust and get a feel for the track again!
Advanced Practice Schedule
Tuesdays and Thursdays: 4:30-5:45 at the Hendersonville Library.
Tuesdays will typically consist of a distance run or a progression/light tempo run. Regardless of the run, we will always close with a little bit of speed at the end!
Thursdays will be our “speed” day where we will work on shaking off the off-season rust, getting in touch with the speeds they will use during the track season and work a little bit on their running meanness! Depending on their track event, we will include tempo intervals, hill repeats, traditional intervals or a combination of all three!
Sundays: 3:00-4:30 at Moss Wright Park
Sundays will be our long run days where we will work on continuing to build their aerobic foundation through longer continuous running, longer intervals with a short recovery and medium-length steady runs. Miles make champions!
Advanced Group Cost: $50 (all three practices or $20 (Sundays only). Second and third siblings are $40 and $30 or $15 and $10 for Sunday’s only.
(Runs from December 31st through January 28th)
This group is primarily designed for the young runner without much of a running background. The goal of this group is to give the kids a positive exposure to the sport of distance running. While we will include some distance runs and loosely structured intervals, we will also make time for running games, expeditions in the woods and other adventures.
Saturdays: 3:00-4:00 at Drakes Creek Park
Cost: $20, with second siblings being $15 and third siblings being $10.
Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding which group to sign-up for. As always, I’m adaptable and just want your kid running! You can sign-up at the below link.
