Cost: $149.99 | Registration is open to all NYF members | sign up here

  • 16 coached practices every Tuesday night in Central Park.
  • Two speed workouts added every week to your VDOT O2 training calendar.
  • Coach led mobility & strength exercises to close each practice.
  • Coaching support via email.

The NY Flyers’ SpeedPass program is back (in-person)! This program is accessible to runners of all levels, whether you’re training for fitness, to stay connected to the club socially, or a half or full marathon goal this season. If you’re focused on the marathon this season we recommend considering our Marathon Training Program, which provides more coaching support and individualization. 

Workouts

All participants receive two Quality Sessions per week (e.g. one speed workout and one long run). The first Quality Session is a coached group workout and the second is a suggested workout.

All workouts are published to each participant’s VDOT O2 calendar, which includes the ability to manage your training on the mobile app, website and/or a PDF copy. VDOT O2 also syncs with GPS so you can easily manage your prescribed workouts and actual splits. 

Coaching Support

Participants can email SpeedPass coaches at any time for questions or updates to their workouts.

Practices

Members gather between 6:30-6:45 pm at the Maine Monument in Columbus Circle. Runners will depart from here promptly at 6:45 pm. Bag check is available (free) across the street on the second floor of the Time Warner Center at Jack Rabbit.

All athletes train with their assigned group (broken down by fitness level) but at individualized paces prescribed on their training calendar. Practices typically finish (around 8:30pm) with some strength and mobility exercises. 

Mask policy is based on the new CDC guidelines: if you are fully vaccinated (at least two weeks past your second dose), then masks are optional at practice. If you are not fully vaccinated, then you still need to wear masks at all times. We will still encourage safe distance and spacing throughout practices.

The NY Flyers’ Summer/Fall Marathon Training Program is back (in-person)! Our program is accessible to runners of all levels who are training towards a half or full marathon goal this season. Our coaching program prides itself on proper training methodology, great customer service and making practices fun and challenging at the same time! 

Training Plan

All participants will receive a personalized training plan geared towards their season goal(s). The 18 week training plan will start July 5th and end Sunday, November 7th, but all fall races can be accommodated in your plan. Participants fill out an athlete survey so an MTP coach can review their recent training/racing history, goals, etc. before personalizing their plan. 

Training plans are published to each participant’s VDOT O2 calendar, which includes the ability to manage your training on the mobile app, website and/or a PDF copy. VDOT O2 also syncs with GPS so you can easily manage your prescribed workouts and actual splits. Your MTP coach will help manage your training calendar, which will also include recommendations on cross training, strength, mobility exercises and nutrition, etc. 

Coaching Support

Each participant is assigned a “group coach” to guide them through the training program. Participants receive a coaching invite so their assigned coach can manage their training calendar. Coaches leave comments, feedback and are available by email to help motivate and make adjustments to participants’ training along the way.
