2019 Summer/Fall Training Programs at Queen City Running & Walking Club

SUMMER

2019 GetUp’NGo “Summer 5K” Training Program – Beginning Runners, Run/Walkers & Walkers
This program begins on Monday, May 13 at two different training locations for this Summer Session – White Oak & West Chester. The GetUp’NGo programs are designed for beginning runners, run/walk and walkers. This group will meet twice weekly – Monday & Thursday evenings at 6:30pm - to help you build up your endurance for the planned “goal” race. This program is ideal for those just starting out, those wanting to get back into it, and/or those simply looking for a group to train with. We will provide a monthly training schedule, planned workout routes, and pace group coaches to help lead you through each workout session.

                                     Queen City Running “Hyde Park Blast/Pray~Hope~Believe/Lei 5K” Training Option – Runners, Run/Walkers & Walkers. This program will begin on Saturday, May 11 with weekly workout options on Tuesdays at 6:30pm, Wednesdays at 6:30pm (West Side) and on Saturdays at 7:30am. We will also offer Thursday evening “Social” workouts. Our meeting sites include Oakley, Hyde Park, Norwood, Newport, Covington, DT Cincinnati and from our store in White Oak. This program is designed as a follow-up to our Pig training season, focusing on shorter distance & speed training in preparation of some local 5k races. This is also a great option for those new or just getting back into running or walking.

 FALL

2019 Fall Marathon Training – Running & Run/Walk
Our Fall Marathon Running training is scheduled to begin in July 2019.  Though designed for the above races, we can easily cater to those with a different race in mind. We will offer a variety of mid-week workout options - Tuesday and Wednesday evenings at various sites around the Cincinnati & West Chester areas. Saturday mornings will be our primary long run workout, with Sunday morning makeup runs always an option. We will provide “on-course” coach/pace group support, monthly training schedule, planned workout routes, hydration/nutrition stations along routes, safety lights (when needed) and plenty of motivation and support that comes our “team-like” environment. This program is open to experienced and first-time marathoners alike, but we do ask that 5-6 miles is a comfortable distance for you when we start.
