We meet several times weekly for workouts as follows:
- Tuesday nights at 5:45 pm for intensive workouts (2-4 miles of intervals, plus 2-4 miles of warm-ups and cool-downs), - Thursday nights at 5:45 pm for less intense workouts (designed for 10- and 10plus minute mile runners) and - Saturday mornings at 8 am for steady runs of 5-10 miles, plus others organized periodically.
Our meeting place for most workouts is the Fleet Feet running shoe store in Davis, on 2nd Street between E and F streets,. They allow us to store stuff while we run in the closet just to the left of the front door.
COACHING & SUPPORT
Our club's orientation is improving everybody's performance in races and supporting our fellow athletes. We are coached by a former Division I collegiate runner who has developed a program of speed workouts, hill training, and running-form drills designed to help runners peak at just the right time for various races throughout the year.
Some of our members run one or two marathons per year, including the California International Marathon in December, and the Boston Marathon in April. We also organize teams for cross country, road relay and long distance racing series throughout the year, as well as volunteer as Pacers for local half marathons.
