2016 GROUP TRAINING SCHEDULE
Official walking/running team training sessions are held on Saturday mornings at 8:30 AM in July & August.
Bill Mather offers training every Sunday mornings year round! For more info on Sunday mornings, please click here to email Bill.
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.
