•We RunKNOX!•

2015 M.O.V.E. RunKNOX Spring Session

RunKNOX is a training program aimed at developing a bonded community of runners who achieve personal success through the support of peers and the guidance of experienced coaches. Whether you are attempting to run your 1st marathon, your fastest 5k or your FIRST STEP, RunKNOX will provide you with the knowledge, guidance and support to do so. Through our group practices, social events and free classes/seminars, you will have the opportunity to learn from some of Knoxville’s most experienced running coaches/mentors and become a part of the RunKNOX Community.

What sets RunKNOX apart? We try to look at the entire motion of the runner, and “fix” problem areas. One way we do this is by incorporating yoga into our weekly routine. Every Thursday night there is a FREE optional YOGA class for all RunKNOX participants. The style of yoga we encourage is one for runners, focused on hips, low back, hamstrings and entire core stability. Another way is tailoring workout to challenge, yet encourage you to push past previous limits. While you train for your specific goal race, RunKNOX encourages you to enter and run other great races along the way. Get out and enjoy the companionship of other runners.
