The SFTC Summer Training Program is an opportunity for you to get in shape or improve your current shape over the summer months.

The program consists of:

  • Weekly beginners (or novice) group activities on Mondays in Kingsport from May thru early September.
  • Different training plans to choose from each designed with specific goals.
  • Support from experienced runners as you define your goals and tackle your milestones!
  • All speeds (and non-speeds) welcome! Collaborate with like-minded "soles".

This program is an evolution of the former Crazy8s Training Program. Using feedback from past participants, we've extended the program to take you thru the entire summer.

$ Money? There's no cost. Just friendly help and advice along the way. And great company if you opt for the Monday night beginner's program!

The training program is centered around Crazy8s and the Eastman Road Race. These 2 events will be major milestones in your summer training plan.

The program offers 2 training plans:

Walking & Jogging - - This plan is designed for a beginner or novice who wishes to build enough stamina to complete an 8K and 10K race. Meeting on Monday evenings at the Kingsport Greenbelt, they break out into sub-groups of varying speeds. More details...

Track Workouts - Choose from 2 track workout plans designed for a runner who wants to improve their 8K and 10K race times. A good time to do these is on Tuesday evenings at Dobyns-Bennett track.    More details...

Note that these track workouts are not SFTC-organized activities - plan to do these workouts by yourself. However, support is available via e-mail as needed - please do not hesitate to Contact Us with any questions you might have concerning the program.
