Winter Warriors is an 8 week running program for men and women to help keep you active and social during the cold winter months. This program is for runners and walkers of all abilities, but you won't just be running! Each week we will have a 45 minute high intensity strength workout to target those muscle groups that could use a little extra attention. The group runs will have informal pace groups and you will have the option of running a 2, 3 or 4 mile route at your own pace.
*Please note: this is a program for recreational runners. This program does not have a training plan or mentors. If you are a beginner runner looking for more instruction, please consider our 5K Training Program.
As part of the Winter Warriors program participants will receive the following:
**Group runs to keep you motivated
**Weekly strength workout led by a certified personal trainer
**Fabulous people to work out with and commiserate with about the winter weather
**Post-run group socials at a nearby watering hole
**Awesome Winter Warriors long-sleeved program shirt
**15% store discount for the duration of the program (excludes sale items and electronics)
**Social media group "Band" for participants only, and access to a training program graduates Facebook group after program completion
When: Weekly group runs/walks will be at 6:00 pm on Wednesdays and our strength workout will be at 6:00 pm on Thursdays. This program will be limited to a maximum of 35 total participants. Our program kick off and first run/walk will be on December 6.
Where: The runs will leave from Fleet Feet Bloomington and head toward the neighborhoods east of Hershey. Our strength workout will be at the Heartland Community College Fitness and Recreation Center, 1500 W Raab Road in Normal.
Program Cost: $50 per participant. And we've got a great incentive to help you #ShowUp: attend half of our workouts and you will receive half of your program fee back in the form of a $25 Fleet Feet gift card for being a successful Winter Warrior. Those who have 100% attendance will be entered into a drawing to win their entire program fee back. Registration paid with a credit card must be completed online - you may register in-store with cash or check.
While it is our hope that everyone joins the program with the intention of attending both the run and the strength workout, we understand that some people may be interested in a run-only winter running program. You may register for the run-only option for $25 but will not have the opportunity to earn a gift card or any other attendance incentives. You will still receive all other program perks. Use promo code RUNONLY23 to register to just participate in the Wednesday runs.
