The 5K training program is a 16-week program designed for both beginners and seasoned runners. It will focus on form, pace and everything you need to know about walking and running.  

  • Beginners will learn about everything they need to know to start walking, running or transition from walking to running.  
  • Those who have been running or walking can learn to take their training and pace to the next level.  
  • If you want to increase your speed, learn about strength training or increase your fitness this is the program for you.  
  • The Saturday practices will be more clinic style then mileage focused.  

This program prepares participants for the Thanksgiving Day 5K or is a great option for those that want to maintain their fitness level through the fall.
