Strength Training for Runners

Strength Training for Runners

RRRC is subsidizing a series of 4 weekly strength training sessions for club members. The training is for all members, whether beginners or those who have been running for decades. The focus will be on teaching people correct form and technique for the exercises to improve performance and reduce injuries. Cassandra from Level 10 fitness will lead us through a different series of exercises each week and will ensure we are performing them correctly and safely. The intention is that attendees will be able to continue to use the knowledge after the classes end.

Feb 26th, March 4th, 11th, and 18th, 7:30-8:30pm

Cost: $9/session x 4 sessions = $36

The effort and intensity will be up to individual attendees. Athletes will all benefit from participating.

Prediction Mile 2020

Prediction Mile & Optional Kipchoge Challenge

January 18 at the Sportplex Fieldhouse.

The Prediction Mile will run at 5:30 PM.  Be there by 5:15 to make sure you are ready to go at 5:30.

What is a Prediction Mile? You just have to predict how long it will take you to run one mile on the track and whoever is closest to their prediction, wins! No timing devices allowed though!

Optional Kipchoge challenge for any who are interested Here’s the details:

In 2019, Eliud Kipchoge broke the 2 hour barrier for the marathon in 1:59:40. He currently holds the world record of 2:01:39 (set in 2018 – the sub 2 hour pace isn’t recognized as a marathon record due to the conditions it was completed in). His incredible pace is equivalent to running 200 metres every 34.5 (or 34.0 for the sub 2-hour pace) seconds (for 42.2 km). Our goal is to see if we can manage Eliud’s pace for a short distance.
