Training Groups and Programs
At Nantes AC, we try to cater to all running disciplines while having an important focus on road running, cross country, and race walking. We also try our best to train and support runners at all experience levels.
The orientation program is in place for all runners to be introduced to the club and find their running level within the club. *Note: All new members are required to take part in the orientation program.
The beginner program is focused primarily on individuals with little to no experience with athletics and running. The main goal of the program is to build up the ability to run continuously for 30 minutes within 8-12 weeks.
The Intermediate program is geared toward more experienced runners who want to improve their fitness overall. The program focuses on the goal of gradually increasing the running duration and intensity. The ultimate goal would be to prepare runners for a half or full-marathon race.
The advanced program is for those wanting to compete at the highest levels, with the goal of training for and competing in long-distance races, such as marathons or ultramarathons.
Motivation: Nantes AC Group runs and the camaraderie of fellow runners can provide the encouragement and accountability needed to stick to a training program and reach personal goals.
Socialization and Community: Nantes AC provides a supportive community of like-minded individuals, promoting friendship, healthy competition, and opportunities to connect over a shared interest.
