BlackToe Running || Coaching Program 2016

What are your Goals?

Whether you're looking to get ready for the spring racing season, push your limits or just get fitter than your neighbor, join the BlackToe Running Team and you are on your way.

We have a passion for running and love helping runners achieve and surpass their goals. Our training plans are tailored to your personal objectives.

With our program, there may be times that you curse us! Hopefully most of the swearing stays in your head but that's up to you. Those tough moments will pass and will make your accomplishments even sweeter. This will also give you something to commiserate about with your BlackToe Running teammates over post-workout beers (or coffee!).

Programs and Price Lists
We offer programs for people of all ages, skill levels and attitudes. Our coaches assist the newly initiated as well as seasoned runners to up their game and push their limits.

Put your PBs on noticeā€¦ they're about to get destroyed!

Get Started

BlackToe Race Team - Wednesday Evenings at 6:45pm
Sign Up! More Info!


Looking to train with an awesome and supportive team?  If you have completed at least one Half-Marathon and are ready for a structured program and coached workouts, this might be the place for you. 

Our race team is all about training hard to reach your personal objectives.  We are sponsored by New Balance so the cost is very reasonable at $75 for your initial sign-up plus $25/month.  

We select people based on the amount of space we have in our various pace groups.  You don't have to be the fastest person on the road.  We just want to make sure everyone has others of similar speed to train with.  For example, half marathon times for our current pace groups range from 2:10:00 - 1:18:00.

We are asking that all BlackToe Race team members ensure that they are able to commit to the following:

- Train with the team on a regular basis
- Wear your race team gear proudly
- Act as a positive role model by supporting your team and all other runners of any ability
- High-five at least one person at every workout!
