Garden Training Runs

Tue April 2 - Thu June 6 Colorado Springs, CO 80919 US


1423-1427 Juniper Way Loop
Colorado Springs, CO US 80919


Training runs organized by the Pikes Peak Road Runners on Tuesday and Thursday mornings in at the Garden of the Gods main parking lot at 6AM, rain or shine, snow or sleet. 

Protocol: We split into several groups based on ability.  Each group runs together (or at least starts together) at a pace that is generally within the ability of the group members.  The group lead can decide the route and any other training features, e.g., intervals, hill repeats, tempo, etc.  Workouts last about an hour (give or take a few minutes). Routes vary from workout to workout, and are usually within the confines of the Garden of the Gods Park, although sometimes a group will explore neighborhoods and trails that are adjacent to the park.
Incentives: The beauty of running in the Garden is enough to get those endorphins exploding. The first 25 runners attending 8 or more workouts are given a free shirt from past races, courtesy of the Garden to Peak Challenge . Group training with others of similar abilities provides great motivation. Excellent way to start the day off on the right foot (or left foot). Prize drawings at the last workout on June 6th.
