Group Training

SPECIAL GROUP EVENTS

RECURRING GROUP EVENTS (Year Round)

Thursday morning group run: This run has been going for about 5 years now! Meet us in the Forest Park visitor’s center parking lot and be ready to run at 5:50am. The group does one loop of 6.6 miles, with options to go shorter or longer. The pace varies and the group sometimes splits into pace groups. This is a no-drop run, so don’t worry about being left behind. It’s dark at start time, so lights and reflective gear are recommended.  Scroll down to see individual event occurrences.

Sunday morning swims: The Club has reserved the use of the Whispering Hills club house pool (12545 Markaire, St Louis) on Sundays from 8-10am. The pool will be open every Sunday with a few exceptions for holidays and other events. We will occasionally host a challenge or coached swim, but will leave a lane open for those who have their own plan. You can do your own swim or join the Mentoring Program’s swim, which you can learn more about on the Mentoring page.  Scroll down to see individual event occurrences.

OTHER GROUP EVENTS (Seasonal)

Tuesday night Creve Coeur Park Bricks: Join fellow members for Tuesday night bricks from Creve Coeur Park. Bike ride start time may vary depending on daylight hours – exact time will be included on the specific event page. The group will meet at the Sailboat Cove parking lot of Creve Coeur Park near the Tremayne shelter.  Routes vary in distance but will typically be in the range of 15-30 miles. Optional brick runs after the ride.  Scroll down to see individual event occurrences.

Sunday Morning Swim - Whispering Hills Clubhouse
Sunday Morning Swim - Whispering Hills Clubhouse

We have reserved the Whispering Hills Clubhouse pool every Sunday morning from 8am to 10am. This is a 25 yard pool. Enter the clubhouse through the side door (closest to the main parking lot) that leads to the fitness area.

Note that we need to be out of the pool building at or as close to 10am as possible. So plan your arrival to ensure you have enough time to complete your swim and any post-swim activities(showers, etc) by 10am.

The majority of Sundays will be open swim so bring your own swim plan. Special sessions or clinics are typically held during the winter and early spring months and will be announced ahead of time.

The pool may remain closed during inclement weather (snow and ice).

The pool may also be closed in order to not conflict with attendance at local triathlons such as the New Town Triathlon and the St Louis Triathlon (to name a few).

We will do our best to post a closure announcement on the club’s private Facebook group as well as here on the website.

You can RSVP for this swim below but it is not required to attend. Space in the pool will be provided on a “first come, first serve” basis.
