Register for the 2017 Running 201 - Fall Session


Running 201 is offered as a follow-up to Running 101(™), though you need not have participated in a 101 program to register. It is designed for a runner with an existing run volume base seeking to improve his/her performance at the 5K/10K distances and/or build the endurance to move to a longer event.  If you can run 9:00 for a mile or faster, OR you can run 5 miles without stopping at a slower pace, you will fit in Running 201.  Current participants have run 5Ks between 18:00 and 32:00 and/or completed a longer distance event with minimal walking. Running 201 is offered in multiple sessions from early-spring through fall.


The standard program meets for two one-hour sessions (or slightly longer) each week. A typical session may focus on endurance, improving speed through intervals targeting different running forms and training zones/energy systems, and running technique.  Participants' 8-week training schedule also includes suggested run volume and efforts for days the group does not meet.

When you complete Running 201, choose to repeat it again -- because runners' ability and training levels vary, there is always room to improve.

The 2017 program cost for a new participant in Running 201 is $140 for an 8-week session.  Returning participant cost (for returners from any previous PR Training program) is $110 for the 8-week session. (NOTE: This fee is LOWER than 2016!)  This cost includes up to 16 weekday coached group sessions (we understand you may not be able to attend them all, but encourage all participants to commit to attending at least one session/week on average.) All NEW participants also receive a technical shirt, and all partiicpants are eligible for other giveaways. 


In 2017, Running 101 will be offered in the evenings (from 6:30-7:30 PM) at multiple locations, including Arlington, Burke, DC, and Reston. Session dates are subject to change. Vienna location will be held so long as there is sufficient registration.
