New England Distance Community Running Club
New England Distance is very excited to announce a new running club starting in the Cumberland-Attleboro area this spring! This will be a community based running club coached by the elite runners of the NE Distance Project. Participants will meet three times a week for speed and endurance workouts designed and supervised by the head coach. This club is perfect for anyone who wants to race anything from the 5K to the marathon, and beyond!
Why: First and foremost, this club is for you to improve your fitness and reach your running goals, with help from professional runners who understand what it takes to get there! Your participation also helps to support NE Distance’s mission to bring athletic programs to underserved children in Rhode Island.
Who: This club is for EVERYONE! Any and all fitness levels are welcome to join, whether you’re a local road race veteran or have never trained for a race before. There will be three training groups to fit the needs and fitness levels of all members. Our goal is to help everyone find the joy and satisfaction in running. The cost of the first 12-week program is $50 — that’s 36 sessions for less than $1.50 a session!
When & Where: The spring session will run from April 4th-June 25th. Group training sessions will be held every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6-7:30pm, with a group long run on Sunday mornings. Evening sessions will be held either at Cumberland High School or the Monastery (Cumberland Library). The Sunday long run will meet at the Blackstone Bike Path by the I-295 visitors center.
