Strength and conditioning

Winter is just around the corner and as the trail running season winds down, this is the perfect time to work on your weaknesses, literally!
Strength and conditioning work is just as important as putting in the mileage in a training routine, if not more so.   Let’s spend the next 4 months together building a strong foundation so that you can run stronger and injury free in 2018!

Red Rocks Stair Climbing workouts:


In these 60-90 minute sessions we will work on drills to improve running form and speed.  These structured workouts will be tough but appropriate for all levels of fitness and running experience.   

November through March 17th, Saturday or Sundays at 9:00am. 

STAIR WORKOUTS:  At Red Rocks Amphitheatre for a stair climbing workout.  Expect a full body workout with drills, sprints, hops and more fun up and down the stairs and bleachers!   When the weather is warmer an optional trail run will be included.

TRACK WORKOUTS:   Staring in February we will we will mix things up and add a track workout to the schedule.  Late winter/early spring is a great time to start working on your speed and running mechanics.
