Train To Run

March 15-May 2

Have you ever thought about giving running a try? Not sure where to start? Not ready to join a big running group or club? Want your very own finishers medal, group camaraderie, and fun photos?  Let us help you out with a easy 6 week (12 classes) program that incorporates one class of outdoor strength training bootcamp and one class of running drills.

This is meant to be a fun group experience, **You Do Not Have to Run**, walking is encouraged. The idea is to get you moving and accomplishing the distance of a 8K (4.97 miles). Last year our group finished three 5K events, so this year we are increasing our distance. Does 8K sound daunting? Not sure you can do it? We believe you can do anything. Join in the classes and do a different/smaller race with us. The timing of this program is intended to finish before the National Women's Half Marathon & 8K May 3, 2020. Registration of the race is up to each participant, it's not included in the program. Register early.
