FEEDBACK FROM PAST PARTICIPANTS
"I loved the personal attention the CTC Captains gave us!"
"Friendly environment. Fellowship with other runners. Excellent coaching."
"This fabulous program got me through my first winter of running!"
"The training program is a great tool to use in order to train properly and efficiently. I enjoyed receiving weekly emails with running advice. The program was very organized and helpful. I felt very prepared to run the race to the best of my ability."
"This race and training program was my best running experience - practical, encouraging, and, most importantly, realistic."
"I never imagined I could run 10 miles without injury. The mileage schedules for the various programs really impressed me. I guess that's due to the experienced coaching!"
"I enjoyed Mark's wit and knowledge and the having a program to follow and running with others on Saturday morning."
"As a new runner, I found the day-to-day running schedule invaluable-- I really had no idea how to train up to a 10-mile race effectively, even though I was in good enough shape for group 5. I learned so much about racing and training in the course of this program. I also loved that it kept me running through the winter."
"The training program is so sensible. It took me from being a virtual non-runner to completing the 10-Miler, with no injuries along the way. Mark is a fantastic coach who gives practical, sound advice. I have recommended the program to many people and will continue to do so."
"I now have a permanent running partner that runs the same pace!"
"I love the route, the sense of community, and the opportunity to train with others."
"Mark Lorenzoni is a great coach...I also like that everyone, regardless of age, level or experience, is encouraged and cheered on by all. Makes for a very supportive community of runners."
REGISTRATION IS OPEN UNTIL 12/31/13!
