From July 13 through August 3, interval workouts are being held in Ann Arbor parks at 6:30 pm. The 5k style interval workouts are short and intense with the total distance of hard intervals being about 3 miles.
We are taking the following precautions to reduce the chance of transmitting COVID.
- Workouts are limited to 40 people.
- We encourage runners to social distance during announcements and not run in each other’s slipstreams.
- We are not providing refreshments.
- Please do not attend the workout if you have COVID symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat, chills, headache, body aches, loss of taste or smell).
Participants warm up on their own before 6:30 pm. Announcements begin at 6:30 pm and then we start the workout.
Workouts are for AATC members but non-members are welcome to take a test drive. We require non-AATC members fill out this check-in form prior to participating in workouts. You do not need to complete the form if you are an AATC member. If you are not sure if you are a member or would like to check your membership status, visit our RunSignUp page).
On Tuesday July 20th and 27th we'll meet at the lower end of Nichols Drive by the University of Michigan Hospital. See the red pin below. Then we'll jog into Nichols Arboretum together.
