This program is about encouraging and motivating one another to do your best.  Whether you are looking to simply finish, improve on a previous time or race to perform, this program will leave you a better, faster and smarter runner.

New Safety Measures

To keep all participants safe from COVID-19, we will follow a new set of rules at Fleet Feet training programs group training runs. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

·       Group Training Runs will be organized into subgroups of 9 or fewer participants. Each subgroup will be separated from other subgroups either by staggering start times or meeting in different locations.

·       When you arrive at the group training run, check in with your coach. Your coach will ask you to certify that you have not been exposed to COVID-19.

·       Once you are checked in please maintain a 6-foot distance from other participants throughout the group training run. Please refrain from hugs, high fives, and other physical contact.

·       Shared amenities will no longer be available at training programs group training runs. That means no cooler of water, no electrolytes, no foam rollers, etc. Please plan to bring everything you need to succeed.

·       You will also not be able to leave any personal items in shared areas during your group training run. Please plan to bring all of your things with you, or plan to keep your things in your car.

·       You will not be required to wear a face mask, but you are welcome to wear one if you would like to. If you plan to wear a mask, make sure you can breathe well enough to exercise while wearing it.

·       Due to increased respiration after exercising, trainees will not be permitted into the store immediately after group training runs.

·       Use the bathroom before you arrive at the group training run. Bathrooms will not be available at any group training runs unless otherwise noted.
