Event Description

Welcome!   Ancient City Road Runners (ACRR) is excited to present the Gate River Run Training Program in St. Augustine.   This program is an nine-week program designed for runners who are currently run/walk or running 3-4 miles about 3 times a week.    This training program will prepare you to run or run/walk a 15k race.   The program will have runs on Vilano Bridge and longer runs on flat roads.   Included in the training will be intervals workouts with access to a track and coaching.  One of the last training runs will be a "practice" Gate River Run in St. Augustine.  The route will take participants over the Bridge of Lions and Vilano Bridge.   

The program will begin Monday, January 2nd and conclude with the Gate River Run on March 4th.     Group runs with coaching will occur on Monday nights at 5:30pm, with some coaching & tips, followed by a tempo run with a designated pace leader.  Runners will become acclimated with running an incline using the Vilano Bridge.   Wednesday nights at 5:30pm, track workouts will be available.  Although optional, it is strongly encouraged and always at your ability.  Coaching is provided at the track.  On Saturdays at 7am, groups will meet up at the St. Augustine Beach Publix with long easy runs with pace leaders.
