There will be days when you don't know if you can go the distance;
There will be a LIFETIME knowing you have.

We are pleased to announce that the Omaha Running Club this year will resume offering a distance training clinic to prepare runners for a fall marathon or half marathon such as the ORC's Heartland Marathon. The  clinic will begin on April 6 and continue into the Fall.  Our goal is to help you have a successful race!

The distance clinic is held at Peak Performance on 78th and Cass on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Wednesday of the month.  Registration and start date is April 6th. Each session will begin with speakers from 6:00 to  6:45 pm with a run to follow.  The last Wednesday of the month will be  a "mix-up" run starting at 6:00 pm (no speaker).  Explore different areas of Omaha for runs with social time for meal afterward.  Suggestions for distances and locations for long Saturday or Sunday runs will be presented at each Wednesday session.

The clinic is free for ORC members and there is a  $25 fee for non-members which includes a one-year individual membership in the Omaha Running Club.
