Get with the group to get it done! Good training , good vendors and sponsors


This comprehensive interactive training group meets every Saturday for all long training runs in preparation for the KDF mini and/or a full or half marathon in the fall. 

This program is designed for those interested in the unique concept of team camaraderie. Join us for friendly competition in several different local and/or national races.  We welcome all ability levels, from walkers to competitive athletes. 

Our 2017 program runs from 1/7/17 to 4/29/17, then takes the month of May off and resumes 6/3/17 for a fall session shifting focus to marathon distance.

Space is limited, Reserve your spot today.  

We have some exciting new changes to announce with the 2017 Training Studio Run/Walk program

Here are the details:

  • We are once again hosting an annual program (actually 10 months, taking off May and December).  The first official group run/walk is scheduled for Saturday, January 7th @ 7:30am.
  • All Members receive a custom team shirt.
  • Free pair of socks for the first 50 people registered
  • Training schedules are based on completion of the Louisville Triple Crown and KDF mini marathon in the spring and then a marathon in the fall.
  • We are planning to travel as a group to a fall marathon.  Destination half and full marathon will be designated at a later date.
  • Bi-weekly email correspondence with interactive training route maps, informative articles, training schedules and important announcements.
  • Snacks and refreshments are provided each week.
  • Several different pace groups are structured to ensure that everyone has social support along the way.
  • We are once again working hill repeats and speed work into several of the group training sessions.  To increase participation in these workouts Ken Combs Running Store is arranging for various running related vendors to join us on these specific days.  KCRS is also raffling off a pair of new shoes during one of these workouts. (must be present to win)

Estimated value is $485.  Just like all of the races we all enter, the pricing is based on when you register.  (12/1 – 12/14 = $100, 12/15-12/31 = $125, After 1/1 = $150 )   

The Training Studios mission is to attract individuals of all fitness levels to the sport of running. Whether you run for general fitness or are training to reach a personal best in your next race, come join us every Saturday

New Skratch Recovery Elixir!

Skratch Labs: 1-800-735-8904
“We made this recovery drink mix to help take care of our friends and family. It just so happens that many of them are athletes, who need a convenient and simple way to optimize their recovery after grueling workouts. So we set out to make a drink that is sound, that tastes delicious, and that gives them every advantage possible when it comes to their performance. These things matter to them, so it matters to us. We believe it matters to you.”

~ Skratch Labs founder Allen Lim

We here at Skratch Labs are excited to announce our new Endurance Recovery Mix! Starting now, bags of ERM will be available for purchase in Chocolate and Vanilla, with Coffee and singles of Chocolate coming later in the fall!With a design goal of minimizing stomach issues and maximizing deliciousness, we can’t wait to hear what you think! Each of the three flavors contains just 6 to 8 ingredients, is made with real milk protein (as opposed to the more common whey protein), and contain no added coloring agents, flavors or emulsifiers while still offering a balance of protein, fat, sugar and flavor. Scientifically, Endurance Recovery Mix is a balanced choice that will meet your post-activity caloric needs with a taste that will make you smile.

By utilizing protein from real milk powder, Endurance Recovery Mix has a thick creamy taste that can be enjoyed by just adding water. There’s no need to calculate new carbohydrate/protein ratios by adding milk for thickness and taste.
