This is the last weekend of the Summer Mileage Program. We have done this since 1998 and have had Reebok, Saucony and HOKA involved over the years. Most brands find that committing to building a communication program with the high school running community is an investment in the future. We worked with New Balance all the way back in 1990 to help them reach 14-18-year-olds, a demographic that many brands take for granted.

This is the workout for Saturday, September 9, 2023.

Your workout today is a race. The hilliest, toughest, and most challenging race is 3k to 5k. Warm up well, 30 minutes of slow to moderate running, race, run 20 minutes to cooldown, slow to really slow, cooldown stretching. Hydrate.
