We're organizing a new running club serving Beaumont and Cherry Valley. The organizing meeting will be announced shortly, at which we will elect officers and establish a running schedule and create a budget. Depending on the organizing committee, the new club may operate under an existing 501(c)3 non-profit corporate umbrella, MultiSportRED Inc, which was established in 2009 as a triathlon/marathon club for amateur athletes. The new Pass Area running club is aimed at any adult whether accomplished runner or new to the sport. Depending on the organizing meeting, there may also be a walking group.
The distance and pace will be determined by whomever show-up for a run, but we imagine that the distances will be from 3 to 21 miles, depending on your training plan. Pace will be between 10:00 to 8:00 minutes per mile or faster. Most midweek and weekend runs will be led by a certified coach (USA Triathlon, ACE, NSCA, Red Cross). Training plans will be available for members interested in completing their first 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or full Marathon.
Run routes will be through-out the San Gorgonio Pass area, with occasional excursions to local race venue routes, such as Los Angeles Marathon, Long Beach Marathon, OC Half, Rock n Roll San Diego, Mission Inn Run (Riverside), Tram Road Challenge (Palm Springs) and the Palm Springs Half Marathon to name a few possibilities. Run route maps with elevation and distance markers will be added to this site.
