Road racing has become one of North America's most popular competitive sports. Thousands of people participate in road races every year, from 5K, 8K, and 10K fun-runs to half-marathons, marathons, and beyond.

  • Base training
  • Speed training

  • Race preparation

  • Weight training
  • and much more!

Whether the goal is to increase distances, reduce times, or win medals, Salazar has the training method to suit every road racer at every level of the sport.
