Spring Running Program Kicks Off April 4th!

Two separate programs, both designed to meet your running goals whether you are a novice, or seasoned veteran.  In order to  provide you with individualized attention and training, we cap each of the programs at 15 participants each. Participation is on a first come, first serve basis, so we encourage you to register early. (This is a very popular training program and fills quickly.)

These training programs will be held outside, so please dress accordingly. In case of inclement weather, the outdoor training programs may be re-scheduled, though we try to avoid this as much as possible. (Be prepared to run in wind, chilly temps, hot temps, drizzle…we are tough Minnesotans after all, and you can never control race day weather!)
