An introduction to intermediate and advanced groups that can take your training to the next level.   Our goal is to graduate those who wish to improve their running fitness to  The Workout Group.

We encourage all of our participants to find what works BEST for them, whether that be a different kind of fitness altogether, or a running group that may be a better personal fit!   That said, wherever you roam, you will ALWAYS be welcome to drop in and workout with us!
