We offer 3 group training cycles throughout the year for various local races: In the spring we train together for the Charlottesville 10 Miler and/or a spring half marathon; in early summer we offer "tread BASE Camp", a 6-week base training to build speed or distance; in late summer into fall we train for fall marathon/half marathon races.
Our training programs include so much more than just a custom plan and coaching. We truly are a TEAM. You'll gain access to our private training Facebook group where we support one another daily. We also incorporate many opportunities for group runs, workouts at other fitness studios, clinics at local running stores, social meet-ups, and more. Learn more about the experience first-hand from some of our incredible current and former treadTEAM members here.
Group Training Programs
Cville 10 miler/RVA Monument 10k or Spring Half-Marathon
Join us in training for some of the biggest races in Charlottesville and Richmond: the Cville 10 Miler or Monument 10K (or another spring half-marathon/race of your choice!) Sign up with us for the TEAM by December 1st and receive your custom plan to begin our 12-week program by the end of the year. In addition to an initial consultation/intake, we'll have a kick-off party, at least 4 long outdoor group support runs, 2-3 track workouts, a tread BALANCE workshop in the studio, a private cross-training class at another local studio, technical NIKE treadTEAM shirt, a race kit, and a post-race "bRUNch" at one of our local partners (partners in the past have included Three Notch'd Brewery, Snowing in Space). If you choose to run the 10 Miler or Monument 10K, we also have an awesome race cheering squad on the courses to motivate you to push it to the finish line!
Tread BASE Camp
Continue your training journey after a spring race, or build a foundation to complete a race you've always wanted to run - from 5k all the way up to a marathon - with our 6-week tread BASE Camp program. This program is a wonderful way to focus either on maintaining distance or building speed (we highly recommend you follow the principle of specificity and focus only on volume or speed exclusively at one time). In addition to your custom plan, we'll provide 3 outdoor runs, 3 track workouts, a 5-class studio pack, custom treadTEAM gear (hat, tank, or another piece of apparel), and a private treadBALANCE workshop in the studio.
Get Fall Fit with the treadTEAM as you train for the Richmond Marathon/Half-Marathon/8k* (or Fall race of your choice)! As with all of our programs, all abilities/levels welcome! Sign up for this 16-18 week training program by end of June to start in mid-July. You of course get a custom training plan and weekly support by our coaches as well as the following: a training kit/gift from us to you, 4 long outdoor group runs, 3 mid-distance outdoor group runs, a form/flexibility workshop in studio, a run + clinic with a local running shop, a private cross-training class at another local studio, a private treadBALANCE workshop at the tread studio, several group training and social meet-ups, technical treadTEAM gear, option for tread TRAVELS housing before the race, race-day support/cheering squad, and post-race party.
*For the marathon we ask that you are already able to run (easy, slow pace) about 5 miles and for the half-marathon about 2-3 miles. No experience needed for the 8k. But all bodies and experiences are different so don't rule yourself out of anything without talking to us!
We are proud to be the only studios in Charlottesville and Richmond to package indoor classes with outdoor training! Train exclusively with us outdoors or take advantage of our reduced studio packages for treadTEAM members.
