Big River Running Company is proud to host a fun, friendly and first-class training program for runners and walkers of all ability levels to prepare for fall half and full marathons.
This group is designed to help you on your personal fitness journey by providing you with coaches and teammates who share similar goals, turning the tough grind of training into a fun, social experience.
Registration for FALL 2017 Training Team is OPEN!
We offer affordable training plan options for all ability and commitment levels.
Having a training plan can help you stay injury free, improve your fitness and greatly increase the chances of achieving your goals! You now can have a training plan designed specifically for YOU! You deserve more than a generic training plan to help you achieve your goals!
Each training plan comes with specific pace recommendations, daily mileage assignments and can be personalized for your life schedule and goal race. Additionally, for those that sign up, you will be able to contact a coach directly via email, text or phone.
Coaches – Big River Personal Coaching supports Big River’s Training Team, lead by head coach Bryan Traughber. Their support, guidance and motivation can help you achieve your goals!
Pace Groups – We have a pace for everyone, including walkers and walk/run! On Sunday mornings, we run in groups based on pace, not distance. Pace should be training (long run) pace, not race pace. Although everyone in your group will run a similar pace, people will be running different distances. (We offer paces from 7:30 and faster all the way to a walk group).
Details on the options available for Training Team participation:
Gold Level – Customized Training Plan + Coaching Session + Thursday Workout Package ($125)
Silver Level – Customized Training Plan ($50)
Thursday Workout Package ($50 a la carte, but included in Gold Level)
While many people training for a half or full marathon focus on long runs and the endurance aspect of training, speed and pace work play a very important role and should not be overlooked! This Training Team season we are offering the option to participate in a structured weekly speed/pace workout with the guidance of a coach.
Note: If you would like more structure/advice than suggested Sunday mileage, we recommend you sign up for a plan! An individualized plan is the best way to help you achieve your goals. Plans at this price structure are designed to be 12-week plans for goal races in October (or close to that timeframe). For a different time frame or longer plan, please refer to Big River Personal Coaching.
