Running Program

Take over the streets of Waterbury and join the Y Running Program! 3 Group runs are held each week, on Mondays and Wednesdays at 6 pm and Sundays at 9 am. Participants are not expected to be at every run. Most runs leave from the Waterbury YMCA front steps.

The Level 2 Running Program is for anyone who has past running experience and would like to become a better and faster runner. Workouts will vary and will include long runs, speed work, hill repeats and a faster running pace.

The Running Club program costs include a 10-week training plan, 3 group runs each week for 10 weeks, training schedule, Y Running Program shirt and access to experienced runners who will mentor you.
