Beat the Heat is for runners of all abilities

Members continue to return every year looking to further improve their running skills while taking part in the fun and varied workouts created and by Coach Sean Wade.

First time Kenyan Way participants have the most to gain from this program. The average improvement for new runners is over 3 minutes in a 5k. This equates to an even larger improvement over the 10k and marathon distances.

Come out and meet runners who share your love of running and share similar running goals.

Includes 2 group workouts per week:

  • Monday Hills with 5.20am group start – includes warm up drills at 5:10am and 30 minutes of hill repeats or intervals with hills
  • Wednesday/Thursday speed workout will be emailed to you in advance
  • Saturday Long Run with 6am group start. Those runners preparing for a marathon or running longer can start as early as 5:00am in an attempt to beat the heat.

What is it?

Beat the Heat is a summer training program designed to enable runners of all abilities to not only survive but also thrive during the long hot summers in Houston.

Workouts enable runners to improve their 5K, 10K and marathon times with safe, challenging and fun workouts.

The camaraderie of other runners provides a supportive environment to help you reach your goals.

Workouts include hills, intervals, tempo runs and fartleks

Dynamic warmup takes place before the main workout which begins at 5.20am (Mondays)

Includes customized online training schedule for any 5k, 10k, Half or full marathon

What makes these workouts unique is that runners of all abilities are able to work out without being intimidated by faster runners because all workouts are run on looped courses (marked with cones) within sight of the coach.
