Summer Spartan

The FREE summer program to get you or keep you in shape for the summer & the fall racing season

Spartan: A person of great courage and self-discipline.  How disciplined are you to get or stay in shape? You choose where your journey will take you!

Our goal is to help keep you committed to running and walking through the summer.

We will be tracking your points and YOU will be tracking your mileage to earn rewards!

 Program Dates: Monday, June 11 – Monday, August 27, 2018

 Kickoff is Monday, June 11 at 6PM at Fleet Feet.

Spartan Celebration is Wednesday, August 29 at 6PM at Fleet Feet.

This group program is completely FREE AND OPEN TO EVERYONE, but registration is required.

How to become a Summer Spartan, a person of great self-discipline...
The program consists of two key pieces. Point Collection and Honor Miles.

Point Collection
To collect points, check-in with FITVIL at the weekly workouts, special events and races. We will track your points and keep you updated on how you’re doing. These points will earn you discounts to use at Fleet Feet. Point collection is between Monday, June 11 and Monday, August 27 

Honor Miles
YOU select a goal destination or miles that your feet will take you during YOUR foray. It’s your responsibility to keep track of your total mileage using the honors system. We provide a weekly log to help. But please use your Garmin, MapMyRun, iPhone or whatever works best for you. On the FREE online registration form please indicate the total distance you would like to cover this session. And then, being active on your own, and using all our group workouts and activities, track ALL your mileage run or walked between the start and end dates of the program which count towards your total!  At the end of the program we’ll see how we all did in meeting our goals!
