I cannot tell you how much I sorely missed the Nike Training Clinics, which I regularly participated in last year.
Nike Training Clinics were led by Coach Rio and his team of coaches, one of which was Coach Jo-Ar, my personal coach a couple of years back. (Again, I cannot overemphasize the importance of making sure the run clinic you join is led by a reputable coach, especially if you are a beginner!) Last year, hubby and I would arrive late, yet Coach John would train hubby even if Ultra was ready to close for the night. The clinics were also a good venue to chat with running friends after serious training (or during, if you’re a good multitasker!)
The good news is that the Nike Training Clinics are back! Nike Training Clinics start on APRIL 15, 2010. Here’s a note from Kaye Lopez of RunRio:
We’re bringing fast and sexy back this summer with the return of the Nike Running Training Clinics! After a short hiatus, Coach Rio and his coaching staff are back to help you get in shape and in form for your next PR.
Registration and entrance to the Ultra track oval is still FREE so bring your newbie running friends along.
Training schedule and venues are also the same:
- every Tuesday, 6 to 9pm, at the Ultra Track Oval
- every Thursday, 6 to 9pm, outside Nike Park, Bonifacio High Street
We’ll help you kick ass and look great on your next race. Train smart with us at the Nike Running Training Clinic!
