SpeedPass, New York City’s only custom group training option, enters into its second season later this month. Most local speedwork groups are fun and motivating but they lack personalization. Unlike other running group options in New York, SpeedPass provides custom workouts and paces (runners of all levels) geared toward your current goal(s).

Today we’re announcing – SpeedPass – our new training partnership with The NY Flyers, one of New York City’s largest running clubs. Most running/speedwork groups are fun and motivating but they lack personalization and structure needed to help runners stay healthy and maximize their potential.

SpeedPass is broken into three seasons throughout the year to provide more structured training. Unlike other running group options it provides custom workouts and paces depending on what your focus is for that season.

All SpeedPass members receive:

  1. One in-person group/coached practice session per week
  2. Invite to Dr. Jack Daniels VDOT Training Calendar Log
  3. Two custom quality workouts/paces per week added to your training calendar

Speed Workouts For A 26.2 Mile Race?

By Mike Smith

A question I get many times from the runners I interact with is “What place does speedwork have in training for a 26 mile race, Mike?” The question is a good one; in a race so far, wouldn’t you want to just get good at running for a long time? Why would anyone need to practice running fast?  It turns out that faster workouts don’t only have to be performed because you want to be a sprinter. These types of workouts can play an important part in preparing for longer races as well.
