The Running T.E.A.M. (Together Each Achieves More) – Weekly a group of distance runners meets for long runs. The runs are free, informal, and open to all. Depending on the weekend, we have a range of speeds from pretty leisurely to pretty fast. ALL are welcome. The hope and goal is that everyone will have someone to run with. Most commonly we run on Sunday mornings at Newport News Park, lead/coordinated by Michael Leech and/or Daniel Shaye. The bike path itself is relatively flat and root-free soft-surface, about 12’ wide, and 5.35 miles around the main loop. Longer loops include a 10.5 mile option, and longer. All welcome. Too fast and too slow are impossible! On rare occasion we gather at Warhill District Park, at the trailhead by Wanner Stadium, which is about ½ mile from The WISC. The route itself is a hilly (for SE VA) 3.5 mile loop, perfect for building strength and stamina. Run 1 loop, 2, 5… your choice. All (ALL) paces and all (ALL!) ability levels welcome. Your worst-case scenario is that you end up running alone in a beautiful park, or you start with some wonderful people who are too fast or too slow for your mood, and then enjoy the fact that we’re all enjoying running our own paces. A USATF-certified running coach is often present; as are other experienced runners who can help you achieve your goals. And we LOVE newbies! Join us!
