How do we stay together as a group while challenging runners with different paces?

Efforts are self paced so that those who are faster go farther but everyone gets adequate recovery.
During the recovery between efforts in a workout we regroup and the workouts I lead use locations that are designed to allow the group to come back together so no one is left behind.
On the long run we double back to come back together as a group as needed when the group spreads out. This keeps us together and gets those with a faster pace a bit of extra distance.

Try before committing and paying registration.

Please come out for the first group run in a training group if you are unsure as to whether we are a good fit for you.
