Come train with us on Mount Sugarloaf! The weekly hill climbing workouts that began in 2017 return in 2019. Workouts are Monday evenings starting April 1st and continue through May 20th . We start at 6 pm in the parking lot at the base of the mountain.
The workout usually consists of a very thorough warm-up with strength and mobility exercises led by Laure Van den Broeck, followed by intervals up the steep part at the top section of the mountain. Hill training has many advantages! It boosts strength, builds fitness fast, and gives you a bit of extra preparation for all the summer races that have uphill sections. This is a workout for all levels–you can make it as hard as you want. One thing is guaranteed: the best spot to see the sunset!
