Summer Running – SWEThogs

SWEThogs before getting sweaty.

Don’t stop running when the temps go up!  

While it sounds horrible, running when it is hot out is great for your training and running fitness.  SWEThogs is a 12-week running group designed to keep you motivated to run during the hot summer months.

SWEThogs is right for you if you:

– Can run or run/walk for at least 30 minutes, a few times a week
– Are pain-free from injury for at least 6 weeks.
– Want some motivation to run in the summer
– Would like to meet other runners


Program highlights:

  • More relaxed running group, more focused on maintaining base fitness than hitting distance and pacing goals.
  • Weekly coached group runs.  
  • SWEThogs meets three times weekly, a Monday easy run as a group, a Wednesday track session and a Saturday long run.  
  • Weekly “running dynamics” focus topic, putting emphasis on form, pace, and cadence.
  • Program is 12 weeks culminating in target race.
  • SWEThogs will help you maintain the mileage base you earned during our spring training groups.
  • Effective bridge between our 5k Running Start Program and the 10k Training group.
  • Two locations; East and Northwest Tucson.  The East training group supports runners in East Tucson and Vail.  The Northwest training group supports runners in the Northwest Tucson, Oro Valley and Marana areas.
  • Groups meet in a variety of locations so you do not get bored running in the same place every time.
