The BlackToe Run Club is a coached program suitable for both beginners and experienced runners. The program is group coaching designed to help you get faster and learn proper training techniques from our awesome coaches. We can handle all speeds so don't worry about being too fast or too slow for this group.  We have coaches for each pace group so you will be with runners who are of a similar speed and experience level.  Just come ready to run!

If you are a beginner - we recommend being able to run continuously for 10 minutes before starting the group programs.  If you are not quite there, send us an email and we will help you get started!

Did you know that members get 10% off all regular price shoes and apparel? 

Membership is minimum of 3 months commitment.

Eric Bang is the BlackToe Head Coach and he is responsible for overall program content for both Race Team and Run Club. He was the fastest Canadian at the Chicago Marathon twice and ran a PB of 2:18 in CIM in 2021. He has won too many races to list really. Most importantly, Eric has been a key part of the BlackToe Family for many years.

Andrea Smith is our Run Club Coach and she competed at the NCAA Division I level as both a cross country & track athlete. She was the Canadian Master's cross-country champion in 2018 and has competed in distances ranging from 1500m on the track up to 30k on the roads. Adding cycling to the mix a few years ago, she was the silver medalist at the 2019 World ITU Multisport World Championships. Since completing the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), Andrea has been coaching runners and triathletes for the past few years, helping them to achieve their goals.





BlackToe Run Club Basic Membership - $49/month


What does a typical team workout look like?   

  • Coaches then lead runners through a warm-up and form development exercises.
  • Runners are then divided into the appropriate pace groups for the core running segment of the workout which is often intervals (200m - 2km) with short rest breaks.  These change week to week as you progress.
  • Post-workout, the team will often do 10-15 minutes of strength work focused on your core and other key running muscles.
  • When it is all done, we encourage you to run a cool down with the team at a very easy pace!
  • Plan on 75 - 90 minutes for the whole workout including workout and cool-down. 

Membership includes copy of one of the team training plans (non-customized) 2 x per year. Start/End dates each season are based on the Toronto team goal races only (spring/fall). Runners can be moved to higher volume plans or change to different goal distances between seasons.
