Virtual and In-Person Training Programs, Presented by New Balance
Thanks to the support of New Balance, the Credit Union Cherry Blossom will continue to offer several training programs to get everyone ready to run a satisfying 10 miles on April 7, 2013 – whether your goal is breaking 1 hour or 2 hours.
The FREE Virtual Training Program, presented by New Balance, has been thoughtfully designed by Bill Rodgers and Virtual Training Coach Kirt West. The Virtual Training Program will begin on Monday, January 28, 2013. We are no longer accepting training program signups for 2013.
Whether your goal is to finish the race, or to finish faster than you ever have before, prepare to do your best with a coach's guidance and fellow runners to help keep you motivated. AND, you'll get some great New Balance gear along the way!
The program returns after a great inaugural year, and is brought to you in partnership with New Balance and the PR Training Programs. Training sites include DC (Cleveland Park/Rock Creek area), Reston, and Rockville (training at various Montgomery County parks/trails).
The program will kick off the weekend of January 26-27. The program includes weekly group weekend morning runs and optional weekday group runs and/or workouts. You will receive a 10-week schedule based on your background/race goal which includes guidance on what to do on days you are not meeting with the group. On-site coaches will answer your questions and keep you excited and motivated as they guide you toward your race goal.
The $95 program cost includes a New Balance jacket/half zip (guaranteed to first 200 paid registrants, after that point an alternate item may be offered due to gear availability constraints), technical training shirt, and other great incentives/deals from NB. You also receive the 10-week training plan, weekly group runs, and access to our online training log. All that GREAT GEAR effectively offsets the program cost, so it's like you get to train for free! (Note that we've made this program 10 weeks because we EXPECT that there may be some weather-related cancellations, and have built in some extra prep time just in case!)
