Why join this program?
Variety, Motivation, Expert Coaching and FUN! Our experienced coach and run leads will help you run or run/walk farther and faster, learn how to train and get you in fantastic shape. Plus, you’ll meet new friends and enjoy a motivational atmosphere to help you reach your goals
Each Saturday, Stride Strong will meet at 8:00am for a fun training session led by Coach Jonathan Bair. The variety of the workouts will allow you to optimally prepare for the race, reduce chance of injury and learn key elements of training for any running event. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity during these sessions to ask individual questions with your coach to get more specific feedback and info about training. Saturday training sessions will be held every week with exception of March 16th when we are off for the Shamrock ‘N Roll!
The rest of the week, you fit in the prescribed training on your own schedule. Coach JB will help you target specific race day goals and teach you training tactics, race preparation and injury prevention tips. The program targets two key races: the Shamrock 'N Roll 5K/10K Road Race on Sunday, March 16, 2019, and the Northside Atlanta Women’s 5K on April 13, 2019.
Location: West Stride Running Store will be the home base for the training program, but we will try some different running locations in the local area on a few select Saturday runs.
