Barton Health’s is offering“Train for an Event Fitness Challenge” from March to June.

“Whether you are just getting off the couch or a seasoned athlete, this program is designed to motivate you and make you game day ready for one of our local race events,” Krista Carson, Barton Health’s program coordinator said.

Fitness experts will provide the training, skills and workouts to prepare participants for the Rock Tahoe Half-Marathon or Burton Creek Trail Run. This includes sports performance clinics, individualized weekly workout plans, and training sessions.

The 16-week training challenge starts March 2 and runs through June 21. Barton Health’s certified coaches will lead six training sessions each week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Sessions will focus on cardio and core workouts, speed and interval training, cross-training and distance walk and/or run sessions.

The training culminates with the Rock Tahoe Half-Marathon on June 20 or the Burton Creek Trail Run on June 21. Burton Creek options include a 6K, 12K, half-marathon, or 50K. The Rock Tahoe Half-Marathon will end at the Hard Rock Casino with a pool party.

All participants will receive a Barton Health tech shirt, unlimited access to training sessions and team discounts on event registration. Discounts are $15 off the Rock Tahoe Half-Marathon and 15 percent off any Burton Creek Trail Run.

This program costs $99. Barton employees may be eligible for a discount. For details or to register for the challenge, email Krista Carson at or call 530-600-1958.
