Benefits of Group Training

“I totally know why you have so many people signed up….. It is the best, most sensible, enjoyable marathon training program in the world.”

  • If you have a group waiting for you, you’ll get out of bed on numerous days you wouldn’t.
  • You’ll get as much out of giving support to others, as in receiving it
  • A group will pull you along when you’re struggling, and hold you back when you’re feeling too good

Running is more fun when running together, as each member is motivated to run more often, and stay injury free. As you share stories, (gossip, issues) and pull one another along, the miles go by much more quickly. Lifelong friendships are formed in these mission-oriented, but laid back groups.

In each of our locations, pace groups are set up according to current fitness level. A pace group leader keeps the speed slow enough for all members, and enforces walk breaks from the beginning to the end.

Participants in our fitness walking program

  • Learn proper walking form and technique
  • Gain encouragement and support
  • Train for a walker-friendly race
  • Receive a copy of Walking The Complete Book
  • as well as the other benefits listed below

    • Hi – I hope you come back.

      Come to our Spring Info Session

      Saturday, March 28,2015, 7:30AM – 8:30AM
      Pacers Running Store
      10427 North St, Fairfax, VA 22030
      (free parking is available near Panera and Pure Om Yoga of Fairfax, less than one block away.)

      Come dressed to work out!
      Following the Info Session with Program Directors Liza and
      Floyd, join us for a short (totally optional) run using Jeff Galloway’s
      Run/Walk/Run method.

      Our Spring Training Program will
      run from April 11 – October 24, 2015.

      It would be great to have you at the info session. People don’t always believe the program directors, but when people like you speak about the program and why you joined and are looking to come back, they think about it more seriously.

      See you soon!
