Ability Groups

On Sundays, right after Dr. Scaff’s weekly 10-minute talk, Clinic participants break up into three main ability groups — beginner, intermediate, and advanced — for another very brief talk, followed by a run. Participants “self-assign” themselves to any group, anytime.

The main groups also break into several subgroups with various paces and distances.
