FALL TRAINING GROUP (see below Summer routes) 

SUMMER TRAINING GROUP – WINDSOR HILLS

All summer groups – If you want/need less mileage than what is prescribed below, please run less! If you had a rough benchmark, are still tired from last weekend, or had a tiring week from life…please run less! Listening to your body is vital. Remember, the goal is to get to the starting line healthy & prepared. If you have any tweaks or pains, please be smart and run less mileage this weekend. Next week 9/7, we will be running a flatter course leading into the Mt. Bonnell run Saturday on 9/14.
