Coached Speed Workouts – Summer 2017

The Summer Speed Series will begin on 7/11/17 and 7/13/17. Sessions are offered for beginner/slower runners (Thursdays 7/13 to 9/14) and experienced/faster runners (Tuesday 7/11 to 9/12). You must be a PPTC member 18 years of age or older. The class will meet each week at 7:00 PM by the Bartel-Pritchard Square park entrance, or at the Red Hook Track.

Coach Tony Watson and Assistant Coach Charlene Kohler-Britton offer a 10 week speedwork session which is $50 for the entire series and each session is one hour long. While the Speed Clinics are geared to all runners who favor all distances, they are also an excellent way to perfect your goal for those planning for a fall marathon.

The  ten week session will begin on July 11 st & 13th and will run through Sept 12th & 14th.  Sign up here:

(Note, an active membership in the Prospect Park Track Club is required to participate in this program.)

Each week a suggested training program will be sent by email after each session. Each includes a program for those runners training for 10K distance and under, as well as a program for those who are training for half to full marathons.

Attached you will find the Info Sheet that we need each runner to complete, even if you’ve run with the coached speed program before. Please carry it with you for your first session and we will collect them before we begin. If the speed workouts are new to you, please bring your race history (2014-present).

Again, we wish you a warm welcome and look forward to working with each of you.

Best,
Coach Tony & Charlene
