Athletics knows many disciplines. At Vitalis, they can all be practiced, except for race walking. To make this possible, there are four different training groups:
|Road group |
Led by Bart Slijper and Jascha Norder
The road group mostly runs on the road or in the park for distances longer than 5 kilometers. The group is less performance-oriented than the other training groups and there is a lot of difference in level, which is always taken into account by the trainers.
|MLA group Dirk|
Led by Dirk Dijkstra
The middel-long distance group (MLA) is intended for runners focused on 800m to 5000m on the track and longer distances on the road. The training session on Monday is focused on running technique, and on Tuesday and Thursday there are track training sessions. Saturday morning is often an endurance run on the road or in the park. The training sessions on Monday and Saturday are also suitable for Vitalis members from other groups.
Monday 18:30 - Technical
