We are excited about our new format! Thank you for your patience as we make this transition and please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or feedback.
With the changes, there are a lot of questions circulating. Here are the answers to some FAQ's:
What happened to the run sessions?
Instead of run sessions or "seasons", we now offer ongoing Saturday morning group runs throughout the year (3-5 runs per month, depending upon the length of a month, holidays etc.).
How do I sign up for membership?
Go to Home. Scroll down to see the menu of options: You will see Group Runs, Speed Work and Training Plans. To sign up, select the months you want to train from the drop down menu "Select Time" and add them to your cart.
Can you auto charge my credit card every month so I don't have to remember to buy each month?
Currently, we are not set up for auto payment. It is a possibility for the future. In the meantime, if you would like to sign up for more than one month at a time, simply click on the months that you want to run with us and add them to your cart.
What about speed work and training plans?
RRKC's offerings are now a la carte. Speed work and training plans are available at an additional cost. Go to Home for more details and to sign up.
Where can we find the details about the group runs?
In the past, we posted details on the blog each week. Now you can find details about start location, time and distance on the Events section of the website. Home>News>Events.
Are there still going to be aid stations?
Of course! We will have aid stations every two miles with sports drink, water and other needed supplies.
Where are the flags?
The flags and mile markers are a thing of the past. But no worries! Members have access to the maps on the website: Home>News>Events. If you have a Garmin, you can download the map to your device. We recommend you study the map ahead of time and print the PDF version of it to bring with you on Saturday mornings! A group run leader will go over the map prior to the run.
Will there still be group trips/races?
Yes! We are planning on the Newport Rhode Island half/full marathon for Spring 2017. Details will be announced soon.
What are the distances going to be for the group runs?
Training runs will be anywhere from 10-22 miles and will reflect traditional race seasons. e.g. distances will gradually climb in January and increase through the spring in accordance with spring race training schedules.
