Middle Distance Program

We are an inclusive Track and Field Club accepting athletes of all abilities

This training group is for the athlete who enjoys running the longer events.  Those athletes who have taken part in a running programme at school and would like to train a little more seriously will fit in nicely with this group. 
The Royals take pride in how many of our athletes not only succeed in the high school system but continue their running career (some with athletic scholarships) in the post-secondary system. 
The main emphasis in this group is development of speed endurance while making gains in aerobic fitness and learning about race strategies. We are a competitive running group so commitment to practices and off day running is a must.
The group trains three days a week (Tuesday, Thursday 4:00-5:30 and Saturday 10:00 – 11:30) for ten months of the year (December and August are our off months)          See Practice Schedule for updated details.
