The Aspen Run Club is diverse group of runners that have a desire to reach their full potential by becoming a healthier and happier (faster) runner.
Running is free, right? Running is the most basic form of exercise; how hard can it be? I can find a training program on the internet for free, so why should I pay for one?
Every runner brings a unique set up circumstances, abilities, and goals with them. Most pre-made training plans fail to maximize results or accomplish their intended goals since there is much more to running than just logging in the miles. The Aspen Run Club will meet you where you are at and find a plan that matches your unique lifestyle and goals.
In my experience, many runners lead busy and hectic lives and don’t have the time to research the best training programs, plan speed workouts, understand proper running nutrition. Most runners also get injured more than they should and have no clue how to run with proper form or select shoes that meets their needs. These observations are across all ability levels. The purpose of the Aspen Run Club is to take away all the questions and concerns and just train with the time and ability we have.

**The original Aspen Run Club was created in the spring of 2015 as The Complete Runner 10-week training program to help runners prepare for a single event. Following the first training program, it was realized runners need consistent coaching year-round to reach their full potential. The current training group has accomplished many goals they never thought were possible.
