SUMMER TRACK PROGRAM
- Nothing beats stress like a great track workout after a long day!
Description: The Washington RunHers track program is designed for female runners of all abilities who want to improve their running form, speed and fitness. One of the major benefits of our program is the customized training that is specifically developed for the participants by the coaches. 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 fun, supportive 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 9 years. Both are experienced track and roadrunners. Together they bring a wealth of running expertise and enthusiasm to the program.

WINTER MAINTENANCE PROGRAM
The winter maintenance training program is designed to help those RunHers who would like to maintain or improve their conditioning. Al Logie, RunHers track co-coach, will coach the weekly workouts. Al has been coaching for over 25 years and is a former NCAA champion and a national team member for his native Trinidad. The workouts will include drills, pick-ups, pace work, resistance and strength training. The workouts are designed to improve your running form, focus, speed, and your overall strength.
