2017 GROUP TRAINING SCHEDULE
Official walking/running team training sessions are held on Saturday mornings at 8:30 AM in August & September.
HOWEVER.....Bill Mather offers training every Sunday mornings year round! Meet at the tow path entrance on Amwell Road @ 8 AM. All levels welcome, this is a 1-hour out and back where everyone goes at their own pace. One hour meaning we start at 8 and end at 9 with a group picture, you don't really need to run or walk for an hour. For more info on Sunday mornings, please click here to email Bill.
More on August / September Saturday training....
All levels of fitness are welcome, walkers and runners. Our training is very informal. We start together on a marked course and everyone goes their own pace. Many people wear head phones but you'll be amazed how motivating being a part of a group can be. Distances are suggested and marked, people are welcome to cover more or less. It's a good idea to bring a drink! You do not have to be registered to attend any training sessions.
Parking Lot F at Colonial Park. (Amwell to Mettlers, PASS COLONIAL DRIVE and make the next left!) We will gather, take the footbridge over the canal and complete our walk/run on the towpath for a nice soft, shaded surface. Public restrooms and water fountain are available.
