GBTC provides a number of structured and unstructured training opportunities for our members. Once to twice a week, structured track training sessions are provide by Coaches Tom Derderian, David Callum, Rod Hemingway and Bruce Bond. These track workouts are tailored for the needs of specific training groups (sprinters, road racers, marathoners etc.) and follow a season plan around the team’s competitive goals. As for other training such as hill repeats and long runs, the locations are numerous as we have many runners that are spread out in the Greater Boston area including suburbs.
In the spring, summer, and fall, our track workouts are Tuesdays at the Madison Park track near the intersection of Tremont & Malcolm X Blvd. We also have some track workouts in Cambridge as well as occasionally in Marlborough.
In the winter, our track workouts on Tuesdays and some Thursdays at the Reggie Lewis track in Roxbury Crossing (club members are eligible for discounted season passes to the track). We also have some track workouts in Cambridge.
We organize other training sessions such as long runs, tempo runs, and hill repeats are arranged at various locations throughout the week. This includes Sunday runs at Walden Pond in Concord and other weekend runs at various places in Cambridge and Boston.
