LR365 Adults

Minneapolis-Based Running Programs
for ages 20+

Loppet Run 365 Adult program is designed for goal-oriented runners from beginners to the highly competitive level. The program will accommodate each individual’s needs and goals. The Loppet Run 365 programs will offer sessions for the beginner to advanced runners.

For runners of all abilities, focused on 5km – 25km road and trail racing. This program is for individuals who want to improve race times and running mechanics, plus learn strategies to stay injury free. Training will include distance and interval sessions, in addition to form drills/running mechanics, strength/activation, and flexibility training. Whether your goal is to run a personal best in a 10km, or just be able to run 10 miles in a training run, you will learn plenty from Abdi Bile. Veteran Loppet Run Club coach Kevin Johnson will join Abdi Bile for most training sessions.

This group will build on the traditions of the past Loppet Run Club. We encourage all our athletes to join in Loppet Events like the Sitka Salmon Shares CityTrail Loppet and Surly Brewing Co. Trail Loppet.
