RunUTM

Take a break from your screens this fall by running outside! UTM Athletics is launching RunUTM - a virtual fall running program starting Thursday September 17, 2020.

Each week, we will share a simple progressive running program aimed at increasing the distance and speed of your running. For those new to running, the program begins with more walking than running, gradually building to running 5km. For those more experienced, we include programming and ideas to improve your running, including proper form and stretches for runners.

Run UTM starting September 17

The RunUTM program also includes weekly Zoom facilitated group check-ins where we will discuss a new topic each week and review weekly running programming. These optional Group check-ins will take place on Thursdays @ 8:30am.
