RUN 4 FUN RUNNING PROGRAM

For Ages 18 & up and youth Ages 12 & up are welcome as long as accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also enrolled in the program. Participants should dress weather appropriate and bring a water bottle. Class includes running education, running, core work, stretching, and cooldown. As always recommended, please consult with your physician before starting any exercise program.

Beginner Level: This 10-week training program is structured to help you cross the finish line of your first 5K at the Reindeer Run on December 5 (which is totally optional).  This program focuses on beginners, but all levels of walkers and runners are welcome.  Along the way, we’ll provide you with motivation to keep you moving, guidance and advice, weekly group training runs or walks, and educational clinics on topics such as proper nutrition, choosing the right gear, and avoiding injury.  Plus, you’ll have the camaraderie of others just like you.

Intermediate Level: This program is designed for graduates of our Beginner program or for those who are able to run 3 miles at a steady pace with limited walking breaks.  This 10-week training program is designed to teach you more advanced running techniques and to help you continue on your running journey in a supportive environment.  In Run 4 Fun, we want to help you beat your previous personal records and set new goals for yourself, while providing guidance, motivation, weekly group training runs, and more advanced educational clinics.  We’ll also cover topics designed to help you improve your 5K time such as proper pacing and good form, as well as building on previous topics like nutrition, choosing the right gear, and injury prevention.
