Coach Fernando Braz works with athletes whose goal is to win races. And he works with athletes whose goal is to finish a race.


In the Fall program, there were 14 different pace groups for participants who were training for road races and conditioning.
And there were 11 different pace groups for those training for a marathon.
Each week Coach Braz put together 25 different workouts to meet the need and pace for all levels of runners in the program.

Would you fit in one of those 25 groups?
