2018 Fall 5K Training


The weather is cooling, TIME TO TURN ON THE FITNESS!! This program is designed for those new to running/ walking, returning to running or currently in-active, with a goal of RUNNING or Walking a 5K!  We structure the program to help you cross the finish line of a goal race in just 10 weeks.  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.  

The Program meets twice a week during the training period, once on Tuesday evenings and once on Saturday mornings.  The workouts will last about an hour to an hour and a half as we increase mileage throughout the season.  The cost of the program is $100 (does not include the race registration fee)

This program starts Tuesday, September 25th and times up perfectly for the William H Craig 5K  Race for Life (Stride & GOTR goal race for New Hanover, Pender, Duplin, & Sampson Counties) on December 8th.
