Running and Outdoor Programs - 50/50 Fitness/Nutrition


Summer Running Program

Train for a 10k!

Sunday mornings, 8:30am, May 28-July 25


Fall road races are happening! Let’s get back into running shape together this summer so that we can race strong this fall. This 8-week training program begins Memorial Day weekend and goes through the end of July. We will meet Sunday mornings at 8:30am in Hadley or in nearby towns for different types of training runs and workshops. (Our finish time will vary depending on the day’s workout.) 


This 8-week program includes a little bit of everything: hill technique, speedwork, intro to trail running, form drills, strength training, stretching, foam rolling, and more! Over the 8 weeks, we will slowly increase our mileage to prepare for our own mini 10k “race” on July 25. 


Runners of all speeds and experience levels are welcome, but you should be able to run 3 miles at the beginning of this program. For those looking to run longer distances–you are welcome, too! Workout distances can be individualized to meet runners’ goals. 


See the draft of the calendar below (may change, especially with weather) to get a sense of the types of workouts we might do and where we will run.
