The Men's Four Miler Training Program will begin Saturday, April 14, 2012 at 8 a.m. at the Charlottesville High School Track.
Please note, registering for the training program DOES NOT automatically register you to run the race. Race registration is separate. There are NO REFUNDS.
WHAT: The Men’s Four Miler Training Program (M4MTP) is 10 week professionally supervised and coached program designed to help guide men to a healthier lifestyle and a new level of fitness. The short-term goal is the successful completion of the Charlottesville Men's Four Miler foot race; however, the long-term goal is to encourage men to take up regular exercise as part of an overall healthy lifestyle. There will be short weekly talks on proper running, various health issues facing men, and professionally coached training runs appropriate to all levels of fitness.
WHEN: The Training Program will meet as a group every Saturday at the Charlottesville High School Track from April 14 - June 9, 2012 at 8 a.m.
The race will be held June 17.
WHO MAY PARTICIPATE: Any male may join in, especially those who are very out of shape or have NEVER exercised. Last year 100 males participated ranging in age from 12-72. The novice group starts with 2 laps of a walk/run on the track and eventually works up to four miles of running! By the time the program is completed the participant’s paces range from 20 minutes/mile to 8 minutes (or less)/mile.
COACH: Mark Lorenzoni has served as volunteer coach since the program started in 2004. He is assisted by a team of seasoned “Captains” who will oversee much of the training.
COST: $15 for Non-Members ($10 for CTC members)
