The Fartleks, a group of Track & Field athletes at Samohi, have
been raising money for The Painted Turtle through sponsored races
including the UCLA Bruins 5K and the Big 5K at the Los Angeles
Marathon. Fartlek, otherwise known as the Swedish method, is a
middle- and long-distance runner’s training approach in which
terrain and pace are varied to eliminate boredom and enhance the
psychological aspects of conditioning.
