BRRC Training Group – Winter/Spring 2020

The program will safely guide runners through an organized training schedule with the goal of improving their endurance, strength and speed.

Our RRCA Certified coaches designed the Winter/Spring Training Program for runners who are looking to participate in races ranging in distances up to the half marathon.

Races covered in this program include BRRC events such as the Cupid’s Crush 5 Miler, St. Patrick’s Day 5k and the Freeland 15k.  The program will leave you in good shape to compete in the various distances of our Summer Track Meet Series.

You will also be prepared for other local races, such as the Parkrun 5k’s, the Baltimore 10 Miler and the Frederick 5k & Half Marathon.  BRRC is the official training group of the Baltimore 10 Miler and the Frederick 5k & Half Marathon.

Under the leadership of experienced and RRCA certified coaches, runners will be introduced to topics such as proper running techniques, pacing, developing a race strategy, speed work, hydration, dynamic and static stretching, etc.

Prerequisites: All levels are welcome, but participants interested in running the 10 Miler or Half Marathon should have, at a minimum, some experience running (or run/walking) races that are 5K and/or 10K in length and accustomed to running 3 or more days per week.
