Dates and Prices, 2013-14 Seasons

VAVi Running Club TeamWe have specific and focused Training Programs for for up to 5 Races covering 3 Seasons over the course of an 8 Month period. We also have two unique Extended programs that overlap a two seasons, including one Triple Crown that expands the entire 42 weeks of dedicated & focused training.

Since the Race Registration fees are NOT included with the training programs, you can choose whatever race you wish to train for - as long as it fits within the particular Season, plus or minus a week or two.

A Building Progression

We have designed the entire year to slowly build in overall progression in regards to training, intensity, technical information (clinics) and workouts. This is for example, why we do not have a Beginner Program for the Summer Season, our last. It's also why we do not do Track workouts in the Winter Season, our first, nor have the "Running 101" clinic at the start of Summer. The Spring Season builds on the Winter, and the Summer builds on the Spring.

Joining Late?

*We do accept registrations after our typical closing date which is usually 2 weeks after we start. Do keep in mind that we will be X weeks into the training program so you will have some catching up to do. You will also have missed out on some of the clinics and informational sessions. For many, these aren't a big deal since you're just looking for a great group to train with for the longer miles, but we just want to let you know.
