Event Description

Welcome to the morning running group you have been missing! This OFF THE GRID RUNNING group meets at 6:45am on Thursdays in April / May. This group is led by Roanoke's only RRCA certified coach. Coach Becky will lead you through 8 weekly workouts in Shrine Hill Park / Fishburn Park in the Grandin area. These runs are meant to fine-tune your speed and trail agility in preparation for late spring and summer races (or just your general awesomeness in running). All paces are welcome. We will regroup every 0.5-2 miles. (Really fast people might get to do extra intervals during this time.) The people who will benefit the most will be currently running 15+ miles per week. 

Workouts will be about 4 miles each week and will include strides, tempo runs, and intervals. Coach Becky will provide records and feedback on your times, race pace predictions, and goal workouts to get you there! 

This program includes:

  • Professional advice on running, trail running, and racing.
  • Unlimited access to the coach for the full 8 weeks for specific questions & personalized coaching.
  • Tips on stretching, strength training, hydration, nutrition, and recovery.
  • Motivation, inspiration, and humor.
  • Explanation of a wide variety of running workouts.
  • Tips on goal-setting and mental health.
  • Summaries of running-related scientific studies.
  • Social opportunities after the run (caffeinated).
  • A sweet shirt.

What to expect:

Meet in the parking lot at Shrine Hill Park at 6:45 am with your headlamp. Topic of the day is presented at 6:50 am for discussion during the run. Greenway run begins at 6:55 am sharp. The terrain has a few roots, but is not overly rocky or technical like living in Rocksylvania. 

Workout ends around 7:50 am, followed by a coffee/smoothie destination of the week (optional).  

Meeting dates: April 6, 13, 20, 27, May 4, 11, 18, 25.

Cost: $75

Cap: 25 runners
