Event Description


Fall Adult Run Club (English Language)

For runners of all ability focused on 5km-25km road and trail racing. This program is for the individual who wants to improve race times and their running mechanics, and learn strategies to stay injury free. Training will include distance and interval sessions, and will also include form drills/running mechanics, strength/activation, and flexibility training. Whether your goal is to run a personal best in a 10km, or just be able to run 10 miles in a training run, you will learn a ton from Abdi Bile. Veteran Loppet Run Club coach Kevin Johnson will join Abdi Bile for most training sessions.
