Running 101

OVERVIEW

Focused on the novice runner, Running 101(™) is ideal for a new runner or athlete returning to the sport after a layoff or injury. Runners capable of running for at least 30-60 seconds without a break will be comfortable in Running 101(™) -- the program is a good bridge from walking to running. While Running 101(™) is open to everyone, we encourage runners capable of running a mile in 9:00 or faster, and/or those able to run five miles or more without stopping, to consider Running 201.

 DETAILS 

1 PROGRAM DETAILS

A typical session will combine endurance-focused running with some basic speedwork. The pure running component of the training is supplemented with stretching and conditioning, but first and foremost this program is about RUNNING — not a boot camp or conditioning class.

2 PROGRAM DURATION

The program meets for multiple sessions between spring and late fall for two one-hour sessions each week. Participants are encouraged to attend at least one session weekly — we understand that work, travel, and family commitments may mean one cannot always attend both sessions. Participants also receive guidance on what to do on their own for days the group does not meet.
