Quicksilver Running Club
Running with mountain lions since 1983
New Weekly Weekday Workouts
There will be weekly training runs starting this February 28th for anyone interested. These Tue/Thu training sessions will emphasize "speed work" and will contain a healthy and varied diet of intervals, hill sprints, and strides. Get your long conversational runs in on the weekend and take advantage of these shorter, more intense, "less conversational" workouts to improve your turnover, running economy, and strength. Everyone can benefit from these sessions whether you are an experienced Ultra-runner, just starting to train for a special race or just want to enjoy running and training with others. These approximately 1 hour training sessions will typically be planned and led by the famous ultra-running duo of Big John Burton and Amy Burton and will be held at 5:00 pm in Guadalupe Oak Grove Park on Thorntree Drive.
And for a weekend conversational run, there will be a 4 to 6 mile trail run on Saturday’s in Quicksilver Park starting from the Mockingbird Lane entrance at 10:00am. This group run is suitable for runners of all ages and abilities and those that may want to go further or faster are encouraged to join the group at the start.
