Santa Rosa Marathon Training Group (Summer 2018)

Program Start: Saturday, May 12th 2018, 7:30 am
Program Schedule: Saturdays at 7:30 am, Tuesdays at 5:30 pm
Goal Race: Santa Rosa Marathon
Program Fee: $199 excluding race fee
Description: Destination races are fun and a great way to see different regions, but this is a full marathon that allows you to sleep in your own bed, know the course intimately, and run your best time. The course is largely flat with only a few rolling hills midway. The race begins and ends in Old Courthouse Square, and while 2017 turned out to be quite warm, most years it has been relatively cool and even overcast. Join us in a fun group setting to train for the full marathon, make new friends, and avoid doing your long runs all by yourself! The coaching staff are experienced both with leading marathon groups and with running marathons themselves, so you can be confident of being well prepared. The group meets for coached workouts on Saturday mornings at 7:30 am at various locations around Sonoma County, and on Tuesdays at 5:30 pm for speed work and hill repeats. This group will help you get through your first marathon or provide the tools to improve your finishing time. All participants should be able to run or run/walk 9 miles, have completed a recent half marathon, and be able to maintain a 14 minute per mile pace. If you have questions, contact Coach Patrick at (707) 483-3072 (m) or coachpatrick@fleetfeetsantarosa.com. Note that the training group fee does not include race registration.

Summer Youth Track Club (Summer 2018)

Program Start: June 6, 2017
Program Schedule: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30-5:30 p.m. at Montgomery High School, track meets every other Tuesday at Santa Rosa High School from 6-8 p.m.
Goal Race: Empire Runners Summer Track Series
Program Fee: $85*, $75 for returning participants *family discounts available
Description: The Fleet Feet Santa Rosa summer youth track program is about promoting confidence and enjoyment for youth to participate in the Summer Track Series by Empire Runners. The group is designed for ages 6-13 (age exceptions may be allowed after discussion with the coach). Every other Tuesday the program will allow kids to race in the Summer Track Series with the guidance of coaches. NEW for 2018, we will divide the kids into a beginning and intermediate group. We have had many returning young athletes who want to up their skill levels, as well as very new athletes who are still just starting out so we want to be able to accommodate both groups. The groups will still meet at the same time/location to accommodate families, but will have different workout structures. The kids will learn all the track basics, differences between sprinting and long distance, what type of track events there are, and learn which events they prefer. This program will primarily focus on running events and long jump. Overall, the main purpose of this program is to show kids how to enjoy running, racing, and competing. Beginning and Intermediate tracks available. Tuesday and Thursday practices will be held at Montgomery High School and every other Tuesday track meets (five total) will also take place at Montgomery High School. Information Meeting is Tuesday, May 29, at 6 p.m. at Fleet Feet Sports. Family discounts available. Registration will open March 25, 2018. Questions? E-mail Coach Melody at melody@fleetfeetsantarosa.com. If you are a returning participant from 2013-2017, please e-mail the coach for your discount code.
