Group Training Approach

catwalk09 065.jpgWe want you to have fun and feel supported as you train with BTE. We offer several running/walking group training sessions throughout the week for you to choose from. You are encouraged to attend as many or as few as you can.

Run, walk or both! You are welcome to run or walk with the group at your pace. Many of our BTE team leaders are experienced with a run/walk training routine. This involves incorporating walk breaks into regular running and allows you to reach distance goals while helping to prevent injury and have fun. Biking groups will meet on the weekends on an informal basis.

If you prefer to train on your own, check out our Train From Home option. We also have satellite groups in Sedona and Phoenix.
