Join the Richmond Road Runners Club's Advanced 10K (ADV10K) Training to achieve that sub-60 minutes personal record at the Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10K on April 13, 2019. 

The ADV10K training program is designed for runners who plan to run the Monument Avenue 10K in under 60 minutes. Ideally, you should have finished a 10K road race in 60 minutes or less in the past three years. The program is designed to improve your conditioning, your speed, and the technical aspects of your running. It is based on the training program developed by Greg McMillan, author of the book YOU (ONLY FASTER) and coach of Olympic and national age-group runners.

The ADV10K Complete Training is an 10-week program with four key aspects:

  • Saturday runs of 6 to 8.5 miles in goal-based groups on the streets of Richmond
  • Weekly track sessions (9 weeks) in goal-based groups on the track at Sports Backers Stadium (Tuesday evening)
  • Two coaches who work with each goal-based group to help you realize your training goals
  • Time for coffee, breakfast foods, and pre- and post-run socializing before/after the Saturday run

The Track Session Only option allows a runner to just join the track sessions on Tuesday evenings. There will be 9 weeks of track sessions at Sports Backers Stadium (100 Avenue of Champions, Richmond, VA 23230). Space is limited.
