Weekly Workout Overview
Club members can participate in a variety of workouts, from structured track workouts to distance runs to group runs. See below for more information on our Monday & Wednesday track workouts, Tuesday tempo runs, and more.
Monday & Wednesday Track Workouts
Led by our coaches, track workouts are held two days per week: Mondays and Wednesdays. While Brown is closed, we are meeting at Hope High School at 324 Hope Street in Providence.
Monday track intervals are shorter (totaling 3600 meters) and are designed to increase speed; Wednesday track intervals are longer (totaling 4800–5200 meters) and are designed to improve endurance. Many of our members participate both days; some do one or the other. It’s up to you.
Location: *Covid update* We are meeting at Hope High School at the present time until Brown reopens.
Time: Monday and Wednesday mornings at 5:45 am.

If you’re ever wondering whether outdoor practice is on given the weather, here’s our policy: If it rains, we all get wet. Only lightning will halt outdoor practice.
Tuesday Tempo Sessions
The second and fourth Tuesday of each month, the club offers a tempo run starting at 6:00 am from the front of the JCC on Elmgrove Avenue. The goal is to run an even pace for 4 to 12 miles in preparation for a 5K through a marathon. The RMHP coaches will time a 6-minute, 7-minute, 8-minute, and 9-minute paced group. Please let Bob Rothenberg know if you plan to attend and which pace works best for you. Be warmed up and ready to go at 6:00 am.
Saturday Group Runs
Saturday runs will be restricted to no more than 15 people during the pandemic and will start June 20, 2020 at 7:30am.
June through August: 7:30 am; September through May: 8:00 am
Every Saturday we gather at the end of Blackstone Blvd. (near Hope St).

In case of bad weather, our cancellation policy for the Saturday runs is to go by the Providence Parking Ban. If there is a parking ban in effect, the run is cancelled. In any event, club members should always use their own best judgment with regard to both driving and running conditions in inclement weather.
