We 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.
Join us to kick off the season:
Wed., Aug 21, 5:30 - 7 p.m.
UA Cancer Center - University Campus, Kiewit Auditorium
1515 N. Campbell Ave.
Meet your teammates and team leaders,
plus access to local vendors who will support you this season.
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.
Pledge to raise $250, and pay a $20 registration fee, and you can join in the fun! Running and walking groups are scheduled 5 days a week with volunteer team leaders to guide and motivate you. Biking groups train together once or twice per week. Participants who reach their fundraising goal in the fall are welcome to join the spring program without a fundraising commitment.
