On Saturday, October 3rd, Fort Collins Running Club members will be running the “A” Trail in the foothills near Maxwell Natural Area. There will be informal groups of people running distances of 3-5 miles. This is a great way for members to give trail running a try!
All paces welcome. Come run your first trail in a fun environment. If going UP the A trail is too much, you can run the pine ridge loop across the street, or run up the road!
When: Sat Oct 3, 2015 8am – 9am Mountain Time Where: Maxwell Natural Area, Fort Collins, CO 80521, United States (map)
On April 12, come to our spring membership breakfast at Club Tico in City Park, Fort Collins! At 8 A.M. we will have a 5-mile fun run for all members and a 1-mile run/walk for our new Zero to 5k training program!
Rebound Sports & Physical Therapy, one of the sponsors of our Running U program, is once again putting on a Runners Exercise Clinic.
It is “an exercise class for runners that will focus on activating and strengthening the proper musculature in order to prevent injuries and improve running efficiency. Each week’s class will progress to higher level activities by focusing on a new element of running such as a proper warm-up, strengthening routine, and cool-down. This progressive course is structured and led by a skilled Physical Therapist who is also an avid runner.”
Stephen Myers from the Coloradoan wrote yet another excellent article about running, this time about preparation for the marathon. The premise of his article is that to run a successful marathon, one must put in the miles—especially the once a week double-digit long run. He quotes several local accomplished runners such as Jon Sinclair, Kent Oglesby, Jane Welzel, and FCRC’s own Joanne Harms (finisher of 98 marathons!)!
