Run Club Information

The run club is for everyone of all levels; runners that have never run before to runners trying to prepare for local 1/2 marathons. The program for non runners, couch to 5K, will train for a 5K run towards the end of the semester. Running with a group/friend(s) is easier to get motivated, more fun than running alone and we can push each other.

The run club is free for all UT Health San Antonio members and their friends and family.

All runs will be done in the medical center area. We have almost 7 miles of track; from the main campus to the north campus with different route options and challenging hills.

Shoes – Recommended to wear running shoes with less than 500 miles.  Your feet will conform to your running shoes as you run so you should wear your running shoes for running only. We will discuss this more during our first meeting.

We also run on Tuesday nights at 5:30pm starting soon. Stay tuned for more information.

Gold’s Membership: Being a member of Gold’s Gym will help but is not necessary. We might use their facility for some additional training such as using the foam rollers after long runs. Everyone in the group will have the same access. Gold’s will also allow you to use their shower facilities afterwards.

It will be suggested that you continue some training during the week. We will provide the different workouts for all levels.

Dress comfortably; shorts and dry fit shirts. T-shirts get heavy with perspiration and can cause some skin irritation. We will discuss lubricating the body for long runs.

Parking – park on the main campus next to the tennis courts and sand volleyball courts.

The meetings should last a little more than an hour.

Weekly email will be sent out to all runners with different running tips, meeting reminders and the Saturday run route.

Coming Soon – Yoga Wednesdays
