Supporting running in the metro Richmond area
The group will meet at 7am and will be running Long, Slow Distance workouts on Saturday mornings from the John Rolfe YMCA (actually in front of the ABC store). The run distances will be structured to prepare the group for a late summer half-marathon (such as Patrick Henry or Rock and Roll).
This group is open to both novice and experienced runners. You do not need to have completed a previous half marathon to participate, but you do need to currently be able to run at least 4 miles and should be running at least 10 miles per week at a 12 minute mile pace or better. Our fastest runners will be running their long runs at 7 – 8 min/mile. The first run will be 5 miles and the long run will gradually increase up to about 14 miles. There won’t be formal coaches, but we will have several experienced runners joining our runs if you have any questions.
Each week the group will provide a route and SAGs (water, Gatorade, and snacks) on the route. During the summer we may also meet up for mid-week hill and speed workouts.
The deadline for registration is June 1. The program starts May 19.
