Tuesday Night Track (TNT) is an organized track workout with 3 training options provided or bring your own. 2-mile or less warm up and cool down. All pace levels and walkers welcome. Speed work is about YOUR paces, it is not about keeping up with anyone else — it is your workout. For additional information read the FAQ and workouts are posted on the Facebook Group Page.
Note: TNT runs from March through October.
6:00 p.m. – We Run Cedar Rapids
Generally the Tuesday evening group run is one hour and we will run an out and back on the trail with runners going 2-6.5 miles depending on the desired distance and pace.
6:00 p.m – Iowa Running Co hosted runs, December through April
- The group runs are more time based and not distance based, so all abilities of runners get back at roughly the same time. The group runs are also workout-oriented, generally entailing some form of tempo, speed work, fartleks, etc. Not just slogging junk miles.
- 2nd and LAST Thursday of each month we do not meet at the store, we meet at Lion Bridge Brewery and Iowa Brewing Company, respectively. The 1st, 3rd, and sometimes 4th Thursday of the month we meet at IRC.
