About This Activity

The GCU Running Club provides an opportunity for students to get together with other like-minded students who are looking to reach their running goals. It is a great outlet to reduce stress and promote fitness while juggling the demands of studying and social life. No tryouts needed! No cuts! All are welcome to join! Training consists of two types of workouts: endurance and speed. On Mondays and Thursdays, GCU Running Club meets at the GCU track to work on speed interval training. Endurance is the focus on other days, varying from five to 10 miles based on individual skill level. Sundays are rest days for GCU Running Club. With this training philosophy, we prefer athletes be a few seconds slower and healthy as opposed to risking an injury. Running club practices are not mandatory but highly recommended to monitor training progress and fitness goals. We compete in local road races (5K, 10K, half marathons, etc.) throughout the Valley of the Sun from October through March. Participation in these events are not required. It's all up to you and where you are at in your training. Since we are a club sport, we have the ability to pick and choose from an array of road races and participate in collegiate cross country or track meets. There is absolutely no pressure – we want students to stay in shape while attending college and have fun while running!
