Extra Mile Training

This program targets our more experienced long distance runners who wish to improve their race performance for spring distance events such as the RRCA 10 Mile Club Challenge and the B&A Marathon and Half-Marathon.

This is a “fat-ass” style training program: participants are expected to provide their own hydration and nutrition on group runs (e.g. Gatorade, Tailwind, NUUN, GU, bananas, bagels, bacon, etc… whatever secret sauce you swear by.) . Many of the workouts can be completed with existing training groups such as the Tuesday Night group and the Naptown Running Buddies, or individually.
