SUMMER TRACK PROGRAM 2016
- Nothing beats stress like a great track workout with friends after a long day!
Description: Our summer track program is designed for female runners of all abilities who want to improve their running form, speed, strength and fitness. During the Wednesday evening workouts, runners are divided into small groups of similar ability and the coaches structure each week’s workout based on the various groups’ running abilities.
The workouts are both fun and challenging but always achievable since you’re running with the camaraderie of others. We welcome runners of all abilities and offer a supportive and fun training environment.
The track program is coached by Al Logie and John Rusinko. Al has been coaching for over 30 years and is a former NCAA champion and a national team member for his native Trinidad. John Rusinko has coached marathoners for many years and the RunHers track program for the past 12 years. Both are experienced track and roadrunners. Together they bring a wealth of running expertise and enthusiasm to the program.
