Training run schedule
Schedule below, but first, a little about the training runs. They are semi-organized. This means we provide a designated time and meet-up/start point, and the rest is up to you. They are intended to be self-supported – you are responsible for knowing where you are (buy a map at GRSF HQ before race day), and for bringing in your own water/sports drink/foods to keep yourself fueled. Also, please be sure to practice Leave No Trace ethics throughout the day.

In addition, RSVP is required – otherwise, a PHDC rep / training run leader might not be on site. Email – peedeepost@gmail.com – is the best way to RSVP. Also RSVPing on the PHDC Facebook group is fine. Participation in these group training runs is free and you don’t have to be registered for the race to run along with these training runs. Just come on out and have fun.

  • Remember: The official race page is located here. Everything is should be considered unofficial.

Schedule – 2017 scheduled training runs
* Saturday, Sept. 16 – 8:30 a.m. meet-up time at GRSF HQ, Exit 64 off I-68
* Saturday, Sept. 30 – 8:30 a.m. meet-up time at GRSF HQ, Exit 64 off I-68
* Sunday, Oct. 8 – 8:30 a.m. meet-up time at GRSF HQ, Exit 64 off I-68
* Sunday, Oct. 22 – 8:30 a.m. meet-up time at GRSF HQ, Exit 64 off I-68

Other dates could be added – just reach out and ask, or use the PHDC FB group forum to organize your own training run.

Each training run will have a minimum suggested distance of 8.9 miles. Keeping in mind the distance many travel to participate in these training runs, however, additional distance can easily be added on. For example, the Sept. 16 date will suggest the red trail (8.9 miles) plus an out-and-back portion of the green trail (+7 miles) for a total of 15.9 miles. Of course, the extra distance is optional.
