Team training is based on the Mihaly Igloi effort based interval method. Igloi trained legendary runners using his unique internal method (i.e. Bob Schul, 1964 5000M Olympic Gold Medal Champion). Schul modified the Igloi method for the Bob Schul Racing Team which he coach for over 35 years. 5RIVERS, Coach Fox, has used the Schul method, with some modification to train the 5RIVERS team.
Training sessions are held on Monday and Wednesday evenings from January through November, with a Winter Break in December.
Training sessions begin with a warm-up beginning at 5:30 pm and the interval session beginning at 6:00 pm. A typical training session last from 1.5 to 2 hours. 5RIVERS team athletes are broken up into like groups in every training session. Groups are based on ability of the collective group.
Cancellation of a training session will be posted on this websites Home page, the team Facebook page, and via email. Always check one of these locations for training locations or cancellation of a training session.
We train at various locations based on the time of year. Our home training location is the Fairborn High School track during spring, summer, and fall. During the winter months we train at the New Oakwood Lane Stadium or indoors at the Wright State University Nutter Center.
Each year we take a Winter break the entire month of December. We return to regular training in January. Winter location is based on the weather conditions. See below for the current location and start time.
