Fall 2020 running groups

  • 001 Walk to Jog group
  • 101 Jog to Run group

When does the next one start??

The first session starts on Wednesday September 23, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. We are excited to be back and we know how valuable running is to our health.. both mental and physical health. However due to Covid restrictions we are limiting the number for participants and will be making sure we keep a 6 feet apart while out running!

Who can join the group? You can!

Anyone with an interest in improving their fitness, and learning more about the sport of running, is qualified to join. We offer two distinct programs; one for those just starting out (two pace groups aka Running 001 and 101) and Running 201 for those still new to running who want to continue to improve their speed and strength. The walk/jog program offers a safe and gradual introduction to running. The running program incorporates more technical aspects of running and challenges runners with anaerobic workouts such as fartlek, track intervals, hills and tempo runs. Within the running program, workouts are modified to meet everyone’s ability. You can move up or down a group if things are too easy or not challenging enough.

There are many reasons for starting an exercise program. Some want to relieve stress or lose weight, and others just want to enjoy the outdoors. Our program design is specifically developed to assist individuals gain strength and running speed. At Peninsula Runners we work hard to provide a safe, informative, fun, motivating, and rewarding clinic atmosphere.
