Hi Willie! Who are you? Give us your one line bio
Hi guys! I'm the coach for the HTC Training Team.
Tell us a bit about your club history, how long has the club been around?
Our group was formed in 2016 as a training and support group for members training for HTC Race Series events and HTC Relays.
Nice! Tell us a bit about your members? What level of runners typically join you?
Most of our members are new to event training. Many have entered their first 5k and 10k races. On the whole, our runners and walkers are at the novice level but we do have several veteran runners and walkers to support those team members new to training.
Where/when does your club usually meet/run?
We currently meet Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. You can get the most up to date training schedules on our website at http://www.activeedgewellness.com/htc-training-team/
Any cost to be a member/join?
$180.00 which includes 3 free race entries into any HTC Race series race, 3 pieces of very cool Training Team apparel, 3 coached workouts a week, plus a few more things to help you reacah your race goals
Is your group affiliated with any events?
We are not surprisingly affiliated with the Hood To Coast Relays and Hood To Coast Race Series :)
Any cool routes/favourite areas to run in your city that you would like to recommend to other runners? Why do you like those?
Our new favorite for views is River Road out of George Rogers park. We also love Rosemont Road, which has a bike path for hills.
Do you have any favourite local races?
All of the HTC Race Series Races! Of course the Red, White and Blues race in West Linn is right in the neighborhood where many of us live and train so we especially enjoy starting our 4th of July celebrations with this event.
Anything else that we should know?
HTC Training Team focuses on building healthy runners and walkers by incorporating strength and mobility work within the context of our training. Our coaches are experienced and trained. ActiveEDGE (our training facility) is a gym and a Physical Therapy Sports clinic which means that we have training and experience to respond and help prevent many injuries that often occur to runners and walkers.
If you have a running goal you're trying to reach, and you want a programme and other dedicated runners to share the journey with come try us out!
