Training Teams

y_activeswvActive SWV Training Teams are a free service providing safe and effective training guidance and the encouragement needed to train up to area events. It is meant to be a safe environment for new runners looking for guidance as well as a place experienced runners can come for fine tuning or for a social group to run with.charlene and missy

Active Southern WV Training Teams
 provide safe and effective training practices to help prepare area residents for running events. Coach Missy is part of the first year of Training Teams. Through this experience we have learned that beginner runners have the most interest in the program and training toward 5K distances has the biggest impact for our population at this time.

In 2016 ActiveSWV will host three 5K races with Training Teams services before each race. You can expect races in April, August and November.

Coaches and team members will be provided with the Active SWV Training Team Beginner to 5K Training Manual which includes:

  • 5K training schedules that will take you from a beginning runner to an intermediate competitor to an advanced winner.
  • The support of a Training Team coach who will lead one weekly group run for the team and use that opportunity to answer questions and encourage Training Team participants. The coaching staff will also be available throughout the week to answer questions via email or text.
  • This booklet will also provide supporting information regarding nutrition, clothing, and other essential tips that will facilitate development into a strong, efficient runner.

ASWV charleneActiveSWV does provide coach training and is currently recruiting for more Training Team coaches around Raleigh, Fayette, Nicholas and Summers Counties.

Please email or call to learn more about participating or coaching in 2016.
