Training days are Tuesday evenings at 6:00 pm and Saturday mornings at 7:00 am. Tuesdays are intended as a forum to encourage physical activity on campus. Mileage, pace and competition are all secondary. Think of it as a running "happy hour", time for you to get your weekly exercise in and a great opportunity to meet runners from all around campus. Saturdays are reserved for weekly group long runs, with escalating mileage as according to our marathon training plans.
Studies have shown that setting big goals are one of the most effective methods for beginners to make a long-term commitment to endurance sports. Throughout the country, organized training groups that prepare for a goal race have proven themselves successful at motivating beginners and veterans alike to take-up a sport and continue to pursue it.
Now in our 3rd year, we offer marathon training culminating in a spring marathon (we plan to run the Shamrock Marathon in VA Beach in March). We have trained alongside members that successfully transformed from absolute beginner to regular marathoner in one season. Our goal is to instill in each individual a dedication to health through sports despite our busy lifestyles. Join us!
