Meeting Place: At track behind Aldershot Pool, 50 Fairwood Place, Burlington, Ontario
For hills meet at the corner of Lasalle Park Road and North Shore.
Type: Track Drills or Hill Work, self-guided or tag along
Run Time: 7:45 AM - 8:30 AM (a warm-up run of at least 5-10 min beforehand is usually recommended)
Dates: Track: Mid Spring to Mid Fall
Hills: Mid Fall to Mid Spring
Distance: Varies - can be tailored to experience and/or specific training
Pace: Hard enough you want to quit - not so hard that you do. Track workouts are entirely personal with neophytes running along side collegiate track athletes.
Post Run: The track or hills workout is followed by the normally scheduled Saturday Group Road Run. While some runners go the full distance, many of the track runners choose a shorter distance. Change rooms and showers are available at the Aldershot Pool when you finish.
Comments: These events are organized by fellow runners. You are free to follow their workout, or if you want to run your own session, you're free to do that as well.
Make sure you bring your own water and, if you are doing the Saturday Group Road Run, you may want to bring a change of clothes
Don't let the modest profile fool you into thinking our hill workouts are not tough. The short rest and many repeats add up to a great workout.
