Training Programs >> Tune-Up Training Runs
The Tune-Up Run program is designed to give you four opportunities to hook up with other runners (and walkers) to train for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon.
Each run also offers a brief talk before you head out from one of the race organizers or from a special guest. They will provide tips and info, and after the run, free drinks for participants will be offered.
Whether you're training on your own or in a Running Room Clinic, the Tune-Up runs will provide you with a GREAT opportunity to come out and go for an easy training run with a bunch of folks training for October 19 as well.
The runs will also be led by some of the official STWM Pacers who'll be running with you on race day so you can meet them ahead of time so you know who to look for at the start line!
**New for this year — Beer Run!
Join us at Mill St. Brewery for a 10k, then hang out with your fellow runners while enjoying some food and beer! This event is free but space is limited to the first 150 registered. So come out for a great run, some great beer, but most of all come for the great company!
Running Room stores have numerous routes already mapped out from their individual stores. If you want to check Tune-Up Run routes and print them out in advance, see the Dates & Locations schedule above. Maps will be posted one (1) week prior to the tune-up run date.
Pacing... we follow schedules that have graduated long run distances but for pacing we recommend you use a GPS watch, a heart rate monitor where you keep to a 70-75% of your max, or the old 'talk test' method where you run at a pace that allows you to speak in a conversational way (not a broken up speech pattern)… the fitter you are, the faster you can go and speak in a conversational way.
Please indicate the runs you will be attending so we know how many people to expect.
Separate registration required for #2, Beaches Jazz Tune-Up Training Run, July 27: See event website for details.
