Summer Striding Series

Join West Stride for a fun summer training series sponsored by New Balance!  This series of 12 runs and workouts are designed to get you ready to run the Peachtree or any upcoming race. Coach Jonathan Bair of TrainATL will lead the series and guide you through speed, hills, strength and recovery runs.  It’s a perfect way to kick off a summer of striding. Space is limited so sign up now - just $20 for the full series and an exclusive Summer Striding shirt!


Attend 1, 5 or all 12 of the runs! It’s a chance to have a great group to run and workout with. Plus, it’s a chance to implement key training principles – like speed, hill work, strength and more – into your routine.


Please note – this is not a full training program, but a series of runs and workouts that will be organized and led by West Stride and TrainATL. West Stride Wednesday runs are always free, but you have to be a registered Summer Strider to get access to the organized workouts and get the tee!
