Summer Training Team 2019

Saturday Group Run Locations:  3 options:  Willow Lawn (near West End), Short Pump park (will train at this location through the Patrick Henry Half on August 24, then this team will merge in with the Willow Lawn team), or Woodlake (Southside).  Group runs will be held at Lucky Road Running Store in Willow Lawn Shopping Center and at Woodlake Commons Loop Shopping Center (in front of the Burn Bootcamp, just down from the ABC store).  Periodically these teams will come together to run some of the longer distances of the program.  You can switch your location at any time during the season to meet your schedule.

Sunday Group Run Location: Group runs will be held at Lucky Road Running Store except for trail runs which will be determined later.

Note:  As a member of the team, you can run both Saturday and Sunday.  For example, you may want to run one day for your marathon running pace (MRP) and the other for an easy recovery run.
