Training

Whether you want to finish your first 5k or improve your half marathon time, the weekly training runs at Fleet Feet Sports will help you achieve your fitness goals with structured plans and guidance from a certified, experienced coach!

Our weekly training run schedule is below. There are no fees and no need to sign up – just come to the shop ready to run!  All of the runs leave from and return to the store.

Mondays: 6pm – Easy run

This run has been heading out every Monday night for almost 20 years.  Join us for 3 or more miles through the Belle Meade neighborhood and maybe for a loop around the Galloway Golf course if you’d like to go longer.  Sometimes we’ll have guest appearances from companies that we carry, races that we support, or have a surprise theme (costumes, holiday lights, etc.) for the run.  Follow us on Facebook or twitter to keep tabs on the Monday goings on.

Thursdays: 6pm – Thursday Night Run Club

We call it the Thursday Night Run Club.  How do you join it?  Just show up!

Each week brings a different workout to Thursday nights.  Generally, the workout begins with a 1.5 mile easy run to the track at St. Mary’s (near Perkins and Walnut Grove) that prepares you for the workout to come.  Whether you’re a seasoned trackster or are completely new to running the oval, you’ll have a great time and hopefully get a little quicker!  #TNRC

Saturdays: 7am – Long run

One runner’s mile is another runner’s marathon.  No matter what the term “long run” means to you, you’re welcome to join us Saturday mornings.  Our schedule of distances will be geared toward some of our favorite local races with distances ranging from 5k to marathon.  Saturday mornings are planned for everyone:  if you’re working toward your first 5k or you’re looking to meet a new goal in a half-marathon.

Goal races include:

For more information, e-mail andrew.chumney@fleetfeetmemphis.com.

If it’s dark outside, please wear reflective clothing and bright lights.  We stock these items in the shop if you need to pick something up.

Runs may be cancelled due to inclement weather.  We will post cancellation notifications on Facebook and Twitter.

I have been plagued with foot and shin pain in athletics my whole life. Today I was helped by a nice young lady that put a pair of shoes on my feet that neither hurt my feet nor my shins. This was a first. I didn’t know it was possible. Thank you so much!!!

Carry on,

Do you help just runners or can you also help a tennis player with ankle tendon and bursa problems find the right shoes and/or insert? Thanks.

To All Fleet Feet Staff:

I really enjoyed the half marathon (Greenline) training program! Greenline Half Marathon was great (Oct 14, 2013). I am looking forward to St. Jude in Dec 2012.

Be Blessed,
