Training Sessions

Saturday in the Park and the Jersey Shore Running Club offer a group-training running program, Rundamentals beginning in June. Rundamentals is a ten-week program geared toward first time runners and those who would like to return to running after a break. Part of the JSRC’s Saturday in the Park Women’s 5K, the main objective is to encourage women to enjoy the benefits of running. JSRC volunteer, Liz Ireland, coordinates the program. Liz is a veteran runner of 35 years and an ASED (American Sport Education Program) certified running coach through Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). Liz has organized marathon training for JSRC members for 12 years. Other experienced JSRC club member volunteers will provide assistance.  For more information on Rundamentals, please send an email to: Rundamentals@verizon.net . Click here for Online Registration.
