2020 Track

Megan Greene is the new track coach for the Columbines. She was an active track participant with the Columbines a few years ago before her kids after school activities took over her evenings. She is very excited to work with the Columbines in her new role as coach since she continues to utilize the track regularly in her training. She plans to encourage all runners of all abilities to realize the tremendous value it can add to their training. Megan is also USATF Level 1 certified coach.

We are excited to announce that track will be back in March! Julie Berland has already been hard at work to get things ready and transition in our new coach and Columbine, Megan Greene. We are offering two different times for track this coming season!
  1. Wednesday evenings at 6:15 starting March 18th. We expect to be at Powell Middle School in Littleton but have not yet confirmed reservation of the track. Stayed tuned for location. Megan will be leading this workout. Warm-ups start at 6:15 with the workout starting at 6:30. We’ll finish right around 7pm.
  2. Tuesday mornings at 8:30 at Carson Nature Center. Julie will be leading this workout (guided by Megan’s direction). Obviously, no track on the Platte River trail but we’ll adjust by running by effort and time. This will start on March 17th.
Track is included in your membership, so we encourage everyone to give it a try.
If you are training for a 5k or an ultra marathon, the track gives everyone the opportunity to increase speed, learn a sense of pace, and become an overall more efficient runner. One of the biggest mistakes runners can make is to run the same pace, same route, and same distance every time they go out the door. This can lead to overuse injuries as well as boredom. Variation is key for all runners to reach their potential. We look forward to cheering for you on the track soon!
