    For the beginner runner training program, are participants supposed to participate in all classes? Or would I attend one session a week?


    • Greater Boston Running Company says

      Hi Andrea,
      We encourage runners to attend at least 2 classes per week. But we understand that sometimes life gets in the way so if some weeks that’s just not possible, it’s okay. You’ll receive a schedule of workouts you can complete on your own and you’ll always have access to Coach Rachel via email if you have any questions. We hope to see you!
