Winter Warriors is an 8 week running program for men and women to help keep you active and social during the cold winter months. This program is for runners and walkers of all abilities, but you won't just be running! Each week we will have a 45 minute strength workout to target those muscle groups that could use a little extra attention. The group runs will have informal pace groups and you will have the option of running a 2, 3 or 4 mile route at your own pace.
*Please note: this is a program for recreational runners. This program does not have a training plan or mentors. If you are a beginner runner looking for more instruction, please consider our No Boundaries 5K Training Program.
As part of the Winter Warriors program participants will receive the following:
**Group runs to keep you motivated
**Nuun hydration after every run
**Fabulous people to work out with and commiserate with about the winter weather
**Weekly strength workout
**Awesome Winter Warriors long sleeved technical shirt
**Gear up punch card for participants only with special discounts
**Facebook group for participants only and access to a training program graduates Facebook group after program completion
When: Weekly group runs/walks will be at 6:00 pm on Thursdays and our strength workout day will be at on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm. This program will be limited to a maximum of 60 total participants. Our first run/walk will be on November 29.
Where: The runs will leave from Fleet Feet Bloomington and head toward the neighborhoods east of Hershey. Our strength workout will be at Lincoln Leisure Center, 1206 S. Lee Street in Bloomington.
Program Cost: $50 per participant. Attend just half of the program sessions (8 workouts total) and you will receive a $25 Fleet Feet gift card for being a successful Winter Warrior. Those who have 100% attendance at our runs will be entered into a drawing to win their entire program fee back.
While it is our hope that everyone joins the program with the intention of attending both the run and the strength workout, we understand that some people may be interested in a run-only winter running program. Please contact Jon directly if you are interested in learning more about this option.
