Beat the Heat Summer Training

Let's face it. Tucson is HOT in the summer. Yes, it's a dry heat, but there's just no getting around the fact that it's tough to stay motivated. Fleet Feet's Beat the Heat program is designed specifically to keep you motivated and safe during Tucson's hotter months. 

Running is at our core. Even as COVID-19 spreads, we strongly believe running remains essential to a healthy lifestyle and can still be done safely following the CDC’s recommended social distancing measures. We want to continue serving our running communities in accordance with local and federal guidelines while ensuring our locally owned and operated stores withstand the challenges of this unprecedented crisis.

Our Beat the Heat Spring Summer Training Program begins April 7 with Virtual Training! 

Here's what you can expect:

  • Weekly run/walk workouts
  • Weekly strength and conditioning videos you can do at home
  • Weekly emails and videos from coaches
  • Social media groups to share our success!
