Get rewarded for referring friends to a PYRC training class!  Make sure they mention your name in Fitvil when they register for a class and for each person you refer, you get $5 off your next training class (not the current class, but the next class) up to the cost of the class.

COVID-19: We are in unprecedented times right now and respect everyone's comfort level for run training.  The training plan can be followed virtually or you can join in person.  Coach will ensure that social distancing is enforced throughout class, staggering run starts to assist with that as necessary.  We ask that each trainee respects all others' comfort level, abides by coach's instructions, and does not attend class if feeling sick in any way.  Many races are being cancelled or going virtual during this time.  As of registration time, the NCSC is still approved to be on, but that may change due to state or town future restrictions.  We know how frustrating this is, but know that you will not regret the awesome training experience and gain a lot from it.  Your health is our top priority and Pace Yourself Run Company and the training class coach are here to support you and minimize risk to keep you all safe.
