Supporting running in the metro Richmond area
It's still not too late to join!!
It's not just a training team, it's a social training team!!
Would you like to get in shape to run the Monument 10K in the Spring?
Do you enjoy socializing with fellow runners?
Do you like to have a post run meal and drink with friends?
If so you should join the newest running club - The Richmond Pavement Pounders!!
Runners of all abilities ranging from strictly casual to competitive road racers are welcome.
The training program will last 10 weeks starting on Jan 23. Each Sunday, the team will meet at 10 a.m. for a group run, then head to the sponsor bar for a post workout meal and drink. The group run meeting location will include places like Byrd Park.
Registration fee is $50.00
This fee includes:
• A 10 week training program
• Entry into the Monument 10K
• Specials each week at the sponsor bar The Republic on W. Broad
** A Pavement Pounders T-shirt
*** A group of around 50 people where you actually get to know the people you are training with.
You can register at one of the group runs or at the sponsor bar - The Republic.
You may also register via mail or with one of the coaches in person at anytime. Sign ups end on Jan 31, 2010. Entry fees must be received by then and will be non-refundable.

Three levels of experience
Beginner - For anyone who's never run a 10K before, can only run two or three miles at a time, or who's goal is just to finish the Monument 10K without walking.
Intermediate - For those who have run a 10K before and can run four or more miles at a time and want to either: Get in shape to do it again. Run faster than they did last year.
Tailor-made program - The Pavement Pounders are a small group and will be a much more personal experience that the other training teams. As a result, the coaches will be able to tailor a program for the more advanced runners. If you want to run under 40 minutes or are training for a half marathon, that's fine too. But be prepared to drink a beer after the run!
