EVENT INFORMATION

Winter/Spring Training – 2020

The program will safely guide runners through an organized training schedule with the goal of improving running endurance, strength and speed.

RRCA Certified coaches designed this Winter/Spring Training Program for runners who are looking to participate in races ranging in distances up to the half marathon. 

Races covered in this program include BRRC events such as the Cupid’s Crush 5 Miler, St. Patrick’s Day 5k and the Freeland 15k.  The program will leave you in good shape to compete in the various distances of our Summer Track Meet Series.  You will also be prepared for other local races, such as Parkrun 5k’s, The Frederick 5k & Half Marathon and the Baltimore 10 Miler.  

The BRRC has been selected as the official training partner of the The Frederick 5k & Half Marathon and the Baltimore 10 Miler.  As a bonus to training group participants, the race organizers have offered a 15% discount to these races.

Under the leadership of experienced and RRCA certified coaches, runners will be introduced to topics such as proper running techniques, pacing, developing a race strategy, speed work, hydration, dynamic and static stretching, etc.

All levels are welcome, from beginner to advanced, but participants interested in the running the 10 miler or a Half Marathon should have, at a minimum, some experience running (or run/walking) races that are 5K and/or 10K in length and be able to run 3 or more days per week.
