Whether you're taking your first timid steps off the couch or going for a personal best, we've got you covered!

This professionally supervised five month program is designed to safely guide folks of all abilities to their individual Ten Miler running goals. The program will begin on October 26, 2019. The date of the 2020 race will be announced by the end of 2019.

The group will be broken into 6 different program levels based on each person's individual current training regimen. First time or out-of-shape folks are especially encouraged to join us for the 29th edition of this popular training program (over 5,000 have participated in this program over the years). Read reviews from past participants!

The overall goal of the program is to guide each individual to a safe and successful completion of the area's oldest footrace and to make exercise a permanent part of each participant's lifestyle!

The program includes:

  • Comprehensive 22-week program with daily training schedule for all levels and abilities
  • Saturday morning group long runs in various pace groups led by friendly C10TP Captains who will keep you motivated to train through the cold winter!
  • Weekly email newsletter with a message from your coach, tips on training, program updates, and other useful information
  • Optional track sessions
  • Social networking opportunities and events

WHEN: The Training Program will meet as a group every Saturday at 8:00 a.m. beginning October 26, 2019 for a quick lecture, tips, and a group run. Attendance at these weekly group runs is optional.

WHERE: Parking lot across from UVA’s Lannigan Track, 200 Massie Road, Charlottesville, VA 22903

COST: $20 for nonmembers and $15 for CTC members (Wow, what a bargain!)
