What is Run Wild?

Run Wild is an interval based running (or speed walking) program, alternating bursts of speed with longer recovery intervals. Formerly considered a beneficial training program for just athletes, interval training is now known to help improve aerobic capacity, which benefits heart health as well as weight loss.

What I love about Run Wild is that everyone can work at their INDIVIDUAL level. We’ve had speed walkers to sprinters. People who were gearing up to tackle their first 5k to marathoners. First time runners, former runners who have been out of it for a period of time and avid runners.

Intervals will help with:

Calorie Burn & Weight Loss: Since intervals are all about changing the pace at which you run, your heart rate will be constantly rising and falling during the workout. This means that your body will be burning more calories due to the rise in your heart rate. With intervals you can burn more calories than you would at a steady pace run but in the same amount of time or less, which can also lead to weight loss.

Improved fitness and faster mile/min pace: The bursts of speed during interval training help to get you into better cardiovascular shape. When your aerobic capacity improves, you will be able to work out for a longer period of time without getting tired. It also means that you will be able to complete a workout quicker. For example, if you are working toward a faster mile time, training with intervals can help you run one in a shorter amount of time due to your improved fitness level.

Gets you out of the running rut: If running is your typical cardio workout of choice, hitting the treadmill or running the same route/distance a few times a week can get boring after a while. Adding intervals into your normal workout is a way to fight off boredom and keep you motivated and focused. The change of pace during intervals also helps to make the time go faster, making your workout seem less like work.


If you have ANY running-related goals this season, you should DEFINITELY join Run Wild. You won’t regret it!
