Frequently asked questions...

How long is the program?

This program meets weekly and is ongoing. You receive a “membership” for your fee. Once you join, you’ll be “subscribed” and continue each month until you decide to stop.

What levels of runner can join the Interval Training?

The Interval program is appropriate for runners of all experience levels, from novice to competitive. Each workout will have a theme, but the volume and intensity/pace will be adjusted for different levels of runners participating. This approach can challenge the most advanced runners while enabling those newer to interval training to benefit from the improvements it brings. We do recommend that you are able to run 2-3 miles (run/walk is fine!) before adding intervals to your training.

Is this a track workout program?

Many locations will meet on a track, but interval training doesn’t require one. In locations where track access is limited, or even in situations when we typically meet at a track but those darned HS teams want to use it, we’ll take the program off-track for a comparable workout theme, just without the turns and the lines.

How is this program different than Running 101 (or the old Running 201)?

This program meets once/week and is focused on improving your speed/strength through intervals. Running 101 is a 5K training program which will include Interval components, but also include easy running as well as functional training to work on core, strength, etc. Running 101 ultimately includes aspects of both Interval and =PR= Fit (so is a good option in locations that don’t offer these programs.) Interval is more focused.

Are there any discounts or coupons?

Starting in 2020, we’ve simplified pricing. All participants — new and returning — pay the same fee — and =PR= Training is covering the registration company transaction fees on your behalf. This change should reduce complications in the registration process.

At times there may be a coupon code for runners participating in a weekend distance program and complementing it with Interval Training. These athletes will be notified about the code.
