Catch the Wave

Catch the Wave is a program geared toward getting you up and moving. It is a 10-week training program, beginning in February, designed to help beginning runners learn the basics of running and better fitness. If you’re a new runner, a casual recreational runner or just a want-to-get-back-in-to-it runner, Catch the Wave is for you.

The short-term goal of the program is to help participants prepare for the Lake Run 4.37 mile race at Lake Bloomington held on the first Saturday in May.

The long-term goal of the program is to help participants develop a better understanding of the sport of running and get on the road to a life of better fitness and health.

The ultimate goal is for you to get fit, make some friends and have FUN!
