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. 
  • **NEW** HIIT Walking Workout takes the principal of higher effort with the accessibility of walking to provide an aerobic exercise that is accessible to all, low-impact and loads of fun! High Intensity, Low Impact. 
  • 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.
  • STRIDERS - the FREE 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. and during summer.
