2016 Brooksie Way Training Program

Rec Well is seeking Oakland University employees who want to take their running to the next level.  We’re offering two training programs geared towards the 5k and the 10k distances in preparation for the 8th annual HAP Brooksie Way race this Fall.

As an outdoor runner, no one is more geared up for the summer season.  If you long for the warm sun on your shoulders, the breeze cooling your face and exploring the beautiful trails of Michigan, join the club.  Running is not only an inexpensive way to relax and stay healthy, it can curb your competitive streak.

For as long as running shoes hit the pavement, there have been races to accommodate them.  This year’s HAP Brooksie Way race is no different.  Hosting a 5k, 10k and a half marathon, the races will begin right on the campus of Oakland University on Saturday, September 25th.

Training for the 10k race will kick things off, June 30th.  This program lasts for 10 weeks, meeting once a week.  This progressive training program is designed for runners who have marginal experience.  It is recommended that runners are able to run at least 2 miles before the start of the program.  Meetings will be held at Oakland University’s Rec Well at 6:30 pm.

Even if you’re newer to the sport, we have a program for everyone.

The 5k training begins on August 9th at the Auburn Hills Community Center at 6:30 pm.

Trainers are ready to help you reach the next milestone in your training.  So put a spin on this summer and push yourself past your limits during the most renowned and charitable health and fitness event in Oakland County.
