The WOW Team is an official training club for the 2011 Oakland Running Festival offering training for all three events.
The ORF includes 3 races – a 5K (3.1 miles), half marathon (13.1 miles flat and fast), and a full marathon (26.2 challenging miles).
WOW Training starts soon and you can join any time for the marathon, half marathon, and 5K.
Time to Get Started! Join Now and Train until March for $99.
The WOW Team is a club that offers ongoing workouts in the East Bay on Wednesdays and Sundays, for women only, every week of the year and Saturday workouts in the Peninsula/SF Area. WOW chooses certain events to train for and the Oakland Running Festival – Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K is one of those choices.
You can sign up and start training anytime between now and December 31, 2010 for the same price. Training includes weekend workouts and weekday track (not mandatory but very helpful), online weekly news and training pep talks with certified running coach and personal trainer, Stephanie Atwood.
You are also eligible for WOW Team discounts for the race itself, a post-race meeting area in the Celebration Village after the race, and more!
If you are ready to go for it, sign up now! Sign up early! Start training now!
Price goes up to $129.00 (plus one time application fee of $29) on January 1 for the Oakland Running Festival. Your membership allows you to ‘roll over” into the SFM Training for $24.95/month and stay at that price for as long as you are a member.
*Member Discounts on races, bootcamps and other special events
For your racing success and injury prevention WOW requests that:
You have experience with a 5K or 10K race before trying a half marathon or marathon (you can fit in a 5K race while training with us if a half marathon is your goal)
You have experience with a half marathon before attempting a full marathon (start training now and you can fit in a half marathon between now and March if the Oakland Marathon is your goal.)
You have run for a minimum of a year or train in the walk/run technique for your first full marathon (the run/walk technique is a way to increase distance and minimize injury. An average pace of 9 minutes/mile is attainable with run/walk so you don’t have to think SLOW! with this technique)
Come to a WOW Team potluck/orientation/get to know us meeting In Oakland on Saturday, October 9, co-hosted by Go WOW Team and Alive Chiropractic. Starts 5:30 and will include a meet and greet time, cheers and kudos for our current trainees in fall races (San Jose Rock’n’Roll, Nike Women’s, Long Beach), and opportunity to participate in the upcoming relay or marathon at CIM on December 5, AND a chance to talk over the training program for the whole Oakland Running Festival – all 3 events – The Marathon, The Half Marathon, and The Twilight 5K.
