The Fit & Able Trail Blazers Running Team (TBT) offers a wide range of training for everyone, from elementary school kids to senior masters athletes.  All ages, skill levels, and abilities are welcome and encouraged to participate.  Younger athletes are strongly encouraged to have their parents stay with the team during practice and racing.  We encourage all our members to take part at whatever level they wish to participate, whether its improving their running abilities or just wanting to walk for fitness.

This is an ideal program for kids looking at running cross country and a great conditioning program to bridge athletes between seasons.

What’s Involved

Running Team Training: TBT will meet twice a week to run, do core exercises, and flexibility/agility drills. The full season will run from Saturday September 5th to Saturday October 30th.

Regular Practices:

  • Wednesdays: 6:00 - 7:00 PM (Sep.)/5:30 - 6:30 PM (Oct.)
  • Saturdays: 3:00 - 4:00 PM

NOTE: Practices cancelled due to weather will not be rescheduled; cancellation notices will be sent an hour before practice.  The time and location for each practice will be included in the pre-practice email. As we lose daylight, practice times will be moved up in 15 minute increments. Shirt sizes are available while supplies last. 

Pop-up Workouts: There will be 3 or 4 workouts thrown into the schedule for athletes to attend if they are able. These are extra goal-oriented runs.

Sports IQ: Get your head in the game through mental preparation and practice.  (Performance enhancement, racing strategies, and injury prevention).  All TBT athletes will get to attend three sports clinics hosted by Prue Physical Therapy & Sports Performance.  Topics may include: assessing fitness level, injury prevention and remediation, proper equipment, proper technique and biomechanics, and more.

Races: Team members will get some discounts on F&A-owned events and invited to client races.
