HaliFAST Athletics Road Runners

Thursday, May 10, 2018

HaliFAST Athletics will be offering an adult road running group beginning on May 30th, 2018.   The group will meet on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings and will be based out of Dartmouth’s Shubie Park. We will be offering training and racing plans from 5k to the marathon in a fun, social, group training environment.  Technical warm-up and drill sessions, strength training, and nutritional advice will also be provided. 


For the first year we will be capping registration at 20 athletes (first come, first served) to ensure that we can effectively individualize training programs with an appropriate coach to athlete ratio.


Cost: $200 for the full year. Includes individualized coaching, singlet, and Run Nova Scotia membership.


When/Where: Tuesdays at 6pm and Saturdays at 9am. Meet in the movie theatre parking lot at Dartmouth Crossing for easy access to Shubie’s quieter trails. Some sessions will meet at Beazley Field.


For more information, contact Rich Lehman at Richard.a.lehman@gmail.com.
