What can I expect from ZA run this year?
Short and long Run workout options—and Finish Line events.
Short workouts are between 25 and 35 minutes. They’re a condensed version of the Long workouts. They’re ideal for new runners, less experienced runners, and time-crunched Zwifters.
Long Workouts are 40–60 minutes long and offer increased intervals and tempo durations. These workouts are ideal for more seasoned runners looking to improve their speed and endurance.
The Finish Line Runs replace the 5k races from last year and will measure your performance gains. This run should allow you to use the fitness and education from the program to put in a good effort and attempt a new 5k PR.
The run is meant to be the last event in your program, and you’ll have to complete at least one Finish Line Run to graduate from Zwift Academy Run.
Zwift Academy Finals candidates:
To be eligible for Team selection, you must graduate from the Zwift Academy Run program. This means completing all seven structured workouts (long versions) as well as the Finish Line run*, which are scheduled events and can be found on the events calendar.
*In addition to completing the workouts that are required, you’ll also need to complete the Finish Line run with a heart rate monitor. Both of these are required in order to be considered for the Zwift Academy Run Team. To learn more about the terms & conditions, click here.
