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)

IronBrick Tuesday night Creve Coeur Park Bricks: Join Coach Paul Schon of IronBrick Coaching for Tuesday night bricks from Creve Coeur Park starting at 6pm. The group will meet at the Sailboat Cove parking lot of Creve Coeur Park near the boathouse.  Routes vary in distance but will typically be in the range of 20-30 miles. Optional brick runs after the ride.  Scroll down to see individual event occurrences.

Thursday night bike ride from Forest Park: Club sponsored “no drop” group ride every Thursday night leaving from the east side of the Forest Park Visitors Center parking lot at 6:00 pm.  Groups and routes will vary depending on who is in attendance. Scroll down to see individual event occurrences.

Pool Closure due to COVID-19 / Coronavirus
In the best interest of everyone’s health and well-being, Whispering Hills Swims will be cancelled at least thru end of June during the COVID-19 outbreak as we wait for St Louis County’s stand on swimming pools to relax and allow pools to reopen.

We have reserved the Whispering Hills Clubhouse pool every Sunday morning from 8am to 10am. The 25yd pool has 5 lanes. Enter the clubhouse through the side door (closest to the main parking lot) that leads to the fitness area.

 

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

Tri Club Group Run in Forest Park

Due to COVID-19 until the end of June, all in-person club sponsored group training activities will be cancelled. 

Meet at 6:00am in the parking lot across from the Visitor’s Center. Runners do one 6.5 mile loop at 8:30-10 min/mile pace, which will vary with attendance. The run is always counter-clockwise from the visitor’s center, so you also have the option of running clockwise from Skinker to join us. We will not drop a runner if they don’t want to run alone. We run in almost any weather Mother Nature throws at us with the exception of active lightning or multiple inches of snow. If a run begins in the dark, headlamps or lights are recommended. Map below shows meeting location.
