Whether you are train for your next race, looking to improve your fitness, or just looking for a reason to keep running, if you are a 55 min 10 km runner, or faster, we have a group for you.

Workouts consist of a 20 min warm up jog, 10 min of stretching, tempo workout, 10 min of running technical drills, and a 20 min warm down jog. The tempo workouts are run at full marathon, half marathon, and 15 km race paces.
You will have the opportunity to challenge yourself, learn about different training elements, work together in collective group, and take a home a few fun stories. Our clinic will make you sweat, make you laugh, and make you feel accomplished. At the end of the day you will be glad you came and ran with us.
Forerunners welcomes you to join the crew and become part of something more as you will learn about the sport and make lasting memories.

What Can I Do To Prepare?
To ensure that you get the most out of your experience in the clinic, come with a positive frame of mind and an eagerness to learn about the many benefits of running. Also, coming willing to share your own goals, stories, and knowledge, as each member will enhance the overall clinic’s experience. We encourage you to wear reflective clothing and/or running lights. Eating a gel before the workout for fuel is a good idea also.
What Should I Expect?
You should expect to have a great run, and have a great time. We will guide you over 20 weeks to make you a stronger, better runner. A program for a half or full marathon will be provided as well as a weekly newsletter.
