Women of all abilities and ages will be represented in the program and joined by “pace supporters” and coaches for all paces.

In addition, the program is designed to also help cancer survivors that may need to bond with other survivors while training for an event or just to start or maintain a healthy lifestyle.

With an overall “wellness” focus, this program goes beyond simply training for a particular event and is a great opportunity to meet with like-minded women to start or maintain a healthy lifestyle. The weekly weekend meetings include tips and discussions from nutritionists, trainers, physical therapists, doctors and representatives in the footwear, apparel, and accessory industry.

The Academy serves all levels and abilities starting at age 17 and up to seniors and will have motivating supporters of all ages and experience backgrounds including members of local track and cross country programs.

Membership includes a free super-cute women’s specific shirt,

professional coaching both for runners and walkers, tons of free gear and exclusive discounts on related gear, organized weekly meetings, as well as weekly schedules delivered via email for each pace group’s specific workout to do on your own. What really separates this program from any other is the unparalleled camaraderie of an all-women’s environment discussing topics and issues of the utmost importance to women of all ages.
