How?

YES. You can do it.

NO ONE is too slow or too fast to run with XSNRG. All that is needed is the desire to run with others and to improve. If you are able to run at least 6 to 8 km, you are ready to come out and increase your endurance, power and speed with XSNRG.

XSNRG Running Club (read it as ‘Excess Energy’) is a running club that specializes in doing group speed workouts once a week. If you want to improve your overall running speed – no matter how fast a runner you are – you have to do speed workouts. And since few people can do them effectively on their own, we offer weekly speed workouts in a group of 20 to 35 runners. You can’t help but be motivated.

Speed workouts vary from week to week but each week include one of intervals, tempo runs or hills, all part of distance runners’ “periodic” training. If you are able to run at least 6 to 8 km, you are ready to increase your endurance, power and speed with XSNRG.

The club welcomes and encourages runners of all levels and abilities to come out and run. We meet at one location in mid Toronto every Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm sharp and jog to our workout location. Workouts are organized and led by club coaches and consist of stretches, warm-ups and cool downs before and after every workout.
