We have two training group locations to serve the Bay Area (Danville & Pleasanton) with weekly joint practices typically held on Sundays.

Our team competes in USA Track & Field (USATF) cross country races in the fall and track events in the spring.  During the track season, our training primarily focuses on the following distance events: 3000m, 1500m, 800m, and 4x800 relays. 

Our team has two main goals:

1.  To provide a structured training program that encourages each athlete to reach their fullest potential.

2.  To promote running in a FUN, enjoyable way that translates into lifelong fitness and achievement.

Our training program is adapted to all levels of ability. The coaches regularly check in with every runner and customize training plans based on each runner's goals and needs.

What's the Best About Our Club?

We are a family oriented, fun loving group that happens to love running! Many of our athletes achieve results at the national level - including several All American runners.
