Renegade Runners is Sarnia's newest running club! We offer the services of two experienced, qualified running coaches to help you meet your running goals. We train athletes for distances from 5k to marathon.
Renegade Runners would like to welcome Terry Linseman to our group. Terry is one of Sarnia's most accomplished triathletes and will help our athletes meet their triathlon goals.
Why do you need a running coach?
World class athletes like Meb Keflezghi and Kara Goucher know how to train, but they have coaches! Here are some reasons to join a group / work with a coach:
The Renegade Experience
Our goal is to work with our athletes to learn about you and to treat you as the individual that you are. This is the best way we can help you achieve your running goals.
Once an athlete joins Renegade Runners, they are asked to fill out a detailed questionnaire. To help make you a better runner, we need to know your running background, your injury history, the type of shoes you are currently wearing etc. Most of all, we'd like to learn what role running plays in your life as well as your short and long term running goals.
Based on this information your training plan will be developed. We encourage all of our runners to wear heart rate monitors / GPS type running watches and to download their data to programs such as Garmin Connect. In addition to leading all of our group runs and monitoring your progress, your coaches will view your heart rate and pace data and discuss this with you on a regular basis. Periodic interviews will be held with each athlete to review your progress and discuss any questions you may have.
We believe that consistent training is necessary to meet your goals, but we also believe in FUN! Regular social get togethers are organized to support and get to know other runners in the group.
