What are the options?

If you are Brand New to ACT Running:

  • Become A Runner is a 8 week program intended for absolute beginners or those returning after more than a 3 month hiatus from running.  It is a gentle entry into running using walk breaks and low milage.  The program builds peaking at the 5K distance.  There are weekly e-mail tips and athletes will have access to our private site. 
  • Intermediate 5K-10K Training on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays takes those who are fairly comfortable with running 2-3 miles but would like to improve. Every run is different, and the workload varies with individuals and their needs.  We work on running drills, form, strength training and quality runs (hills, tempo, speed, track, etc).  Don't worry, this is intermediate, not expert. Click on green plus sign beside Membership Levels for more information. This group is ongoing, you may join anytime.
  • Half Marathon Race Training - (Starts in August and Starts in January) This gradual program uses interval running (3 minutes run: 1 minute walk) to build up you up to a 10-13.1 distance. You'll be a part of a supportive & social team that will help you reach your goal. Runs will be approximately 8-15 minute miles**. Participants will receive weekly training tips via e-mail, including suggested supplement training, and are welcome to participate in weekday shorter morning runs. Participants should have at least 2 months base of 5-10 miles per week and MUST be comfortable run/walking for 3 miles. The first run will begin with a 3-4 mile run. Train for the Run for the Water 10 Miler, Spicewood Vineyards ½ Marathon, Zooma ½ marathon.
  • FREE The Weekday Walk Group allows you meet up with other walkers for a 20-60 minute morning walk.  It is less structured than the programs distance but requires RSVP on our private site. Takes place only when "Become A Runner" programs are in session (Monday/Wednesday/Friday). 
  • NOTE: All programs take a 2 week break the end of December/early Jan. 

If you are RETURNING ALUMNI

  • Once you have completed any full program with ACT Running, you'll be eligible to join the ALUMNI Run Club.  Jump into any run at anytime for one lower monthly fee.  It allows you to maintain and improve on the progress you made in any of the ACT Running programs.  You choose your goal and coach will help you get there.   Open to all Become A Runner graduates or with permission from Coach.  Come to any of the runs Monday- Saturday . Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays typically very short/slow runs with the Become A Runner crew. Tuesday/Thursdays are 3-5 mile runs with some quality runs. Saturdays we work on developing distance, offering several distances each Saturday between 3-15 miles, depending on your need. Coach will help map out your appropriate training.
