Why You Need a Running Group

The Group at St. Pete Running Company Group Run is made up of people just like you: people who want to stay fit, enjoy the company of other walkers and runners, struggle but find support in the group while striving for a healthier lifestyle.

St. Pete Running Company is hosting another round of our popular Running Classes.  Last time we did this back in June we instructed over 200 students to a more efficient running form. 65% of Runners will have an injury THIS YEAR! Don't become a statistic! A full description of the courses are below. These classes are open and informative and are a great tool to help you get started on your running journey. The cost to attend is $5 per class, and each participant will receive a $10 St. Pete Running Company  $10 Voucher to spend in our Running Store.


Running 101.  Saturday, October 4th at 8:00 AM.  Also bring cash because we're having a coffee truck there from 7:00 - 10:00!   RSVP to our Facebook Event

Description:  If you've never run 1 mile in your life, this class is for you! This is for beginner to intermediate runners who want to learn the basics of proper run technique. We start with how to put your foot on the ground, and continue on from there. Like everything else we do, this is meant to be a friendly and non-intimidating class which will be perfect for the non-runner. The whole class will last approximately 1 hour and there won't actually be much running involved.  We will be outside moving around, so bring a bottle of water and wear your running shoes. The end result is that you will leave the class with a strong understanding of what's required to run efficiently.


Running Refresh Class. Sunday, October 5th at 8:00 AM. RSVP to our Facebook Event

Description:  Come to this class if you can't make Saturday's class or if you've already taken one of our classes in the past and just want to freshen up on your running technique. The class will be designed for beginner to intermediate runners and we will go over how to run more efficiently. Depending on class size we will break off into smaller group and work on some running technique drills.  This class will be a great reminder those who already "get it" as to why cadence, positioning and posture are important. Also by the end of this class you should know how to reduce the loading forces on your knees, hips and back and use your tendons more when you run.... (That's a good thing!)


Running 201.  Saturday, October 11th at 8:00 AM. This class will last approximately 1 hour and we will be outside moving around. This builds on the foundations we learned in running 101. We will go over much of the Running 101 curriculum as well so if you missed class on Oct 4th, that's okay. This class will incorporate some running technique drills which are designed to help with positioning of your hips and legs. This class is designed for beginner to intermediate runners and is sure to be informative. Usually this is the biggest class we have when we run this course!


Running 301. Saturday, October 18th at 8:00 AM. This is designed for beginners all the way up to advanced runners. Learn techniques and drills that elite runners incorporate into their everyday training regimen to become more efficient at running. We will build from what we learned in Running 101 and 201, and although prior attendance isn't required, it is certainly encouraged. 75% of this class is outside and the final 25% will be inside using foam rollers and body weight exercises. The end result is that you will have a daily routine and will have a thorough understanding of training practices which will improve efficiency
