Attention! The 5K Beginner Program in Albany is now closed.
The 13.1 Program and 26.2 Program in Malta is also now closed.
Good day everyone:
All of us at Fleet Feet hope you are well.
After a good deal of discussion, weighing the risks and the rewards, careful consideration of the feelings of our coaches, and the potential risk during this troubling time, we have decided with one exception to forego our “gathering” training programs for the balance of this year.
For those who may be interested, we will offer a twelve-week virtual session, bringing all of the elements of our programs to you on a weekly basis as we have in the past. The fee for this session, should you wish to participate, is sixty dollars.
If you have already registered for one of our programs we will be issuing full refunds in a timely way.
Like you, we are tired of virtual running — virtual everything — but we must do everything we possibly can to keep everyone safe. This is not an easy decision. It is not even popular with some of my own team, but I believe it is the right one for the times.
The one exception to our gathering decision is the 13.1/26.2 program in Malta. Coach Mindel and I have discussed medical, state mandated, and Fleet Feet best practices and will relentlessly employ them. If they cannot be strictly adhered to we will cancel that program as well; but we are confident we can do this safely.
I want to thank Program Coordinator Patti Clark, our coaches, and FFRC coordinator John Williams-Searle for their candid, frank opinions. Their judgement, wisdom, and care for each of you is so evident.
Spring 21 will come; I hope with more opportunity.
I look forward to that day.
Good running, stay safe, and thank you for all the support.
For all programs, advance registration and the completion of a medical waiver (signed by both you and a medical practitioner) is required prior to participation.
