Join us for track and start building that speed!
We meet in the track parking lot at 430a SHARP and begin every workout with a 2 mile road loop at a 9:00/mi pace and dynamic drill work together. For those who would like to join a little later or do a warm up jog on their own, you’re welcome to do so. Our dynamic warm up begins at 4:50a on the track and intervals at 5:10a
If you’re looking to improve your running fitness, form and speed, this is a good place to be. Everyone is welcome! If you’re not familiar with track work, not quite ready for 9:00/mi or have some questions, don’t be intimidated. We were all new to it once, we’re a friendly bunch and we’ll help you modify the workout, just be sure to arrive 10 minutes early so we can explain everything. We welcome ALL running abilities and despite what you might think, you probably won’t be the slowest one. Join us!
