January Info Session scheduled for 1-16-11Red River Runners-Grand Forks is gearing up for another year of fun running! On Sunday, January 16th, RRRGF will hold an info session to talk all about what's in store for running in 2011. We'll talk about the marathon and half marathon training class including an 18 week training schedule and monthly info sessions, and group runs offered for runners not specifically training for a marathon. This year, we're all about expanding our options. If you are running just to stay in shape, or to train for a marathon, RRRGF has what you're looking for.
Training Class: If you're thinking of running the Fargo marathon or half marathon, join the 18 week training class to help you get to the starting line! Runners meet every Saturday morning starting 1-22-11 and train together for this event. We have a number of "trainers" to help get you through. Our trainers are our group members who have run marathons in the past. They'll be available for tips, advice, and training partners. In addition, monthly info sessions are provided by local health professionals such as nutritionists, massage therapists, chiropractors, and more. An 18 week training schedule is provided in 6 week increments. This is the 4th year of the training class. Past participants have praised the group for helping them to get out of bed and get the training runs in even if the weather isn't perfect. The team atmosphere this group provides is a huge motivator for many runners, as well.
Group Runs: If you're training for your first 5k, or just want people to run with in the winter to keep you going, join us for group runs every Saturday morning. You don't have to be signed up for a marathon or half marathon to join in on the group runs. This year, we're offering the group runs to all levels of runners because we want to help keep you running all winter long!
