Tour de Chafee Run Club

Tour de Chafee Run Club
The club welcomes runners of all abilities, whether you are trying to build up for your first 5K or you’re looking to improve your personal record, this club is for you.  The club will meet weekly at the John H. Chafee Fitness Center and explore scenic loops around Naval Station Newport.  Each week will begin with a proper dynamic warm-up, conclude with a cool down and stretch, and will feature different workouts to build up your speed and endurance.  The club is also a great way to prep for our signature Tour de Chafee 5K Fun Run Race Series which will include three fun runs and guest speakers who will be joining us on selected dates to educate and answer questions on topics like fueling before and after exercise, gait analysis, training methods and strategies for injury prevention.

Mondays 6 p.m. at the John H. Chafee Fitness Center
