During the Winter and Summer Training sessions (lasting 9-weeks for middle school runners and 6-weeks for high school runners), we typically have a higher number of runners joining the preseason training program. Because of the inflow of new runners, Pacers are hired to pace, Coaches are hired to ensure safety and general oversight, and facilities are rented for the all that is included in the training sessions (see our Winter Training 2019 page). Therefore, the price of the Runcard is increased to account for all that is included upon registration. If you are regularly training prior to the start of Winter Training, then you may purchase a Runcard at the original value of $125 via check or cash. All Runcards purchased at this price ($125) will be placed on a hold during the Winter and Summer Training months, then resume once those periods have concluded.
Why a Runcard?
For the on-the-go families, the Runcard offers an alternate solution to those wishing to train when their schedule allows. Runcard’s are for runners familiar with Whisper Running group training, offering training two to three times each week during the Spring and Fall months. Check out the calendar page to see if this format works for your families schedule. Training type will be predicated on attendance, ability levels, and training history. Most workouts are geared towards speed-endurance for middle distance runners. If we gather a group of pure sprinters (100m-400m), separate speed-endurance workouts will be conducted. If we have multiple abilities, then we will divide and conquer. One Runcard is good for eight practices and/or cross-country meets. Runcard’s expire three months after the first date of use.
