Registration for the Spring 5k Training Group is now open!

 

The Duluth Running Co. Spring 5K Training Group begins April 21 and runs to June 16, 2014 in preparation for summer 5k races. The group will be great for new runners, or for runners looking for a bit more structure in their training.

 

All ages, genders, and abilities welcome! Past groups have seen father-daughter pairs, high school students, new parents, and retirees. The more variety, the more to learn!

Registration is also available in store at Duluth Running Company.

 

 

 

Members will be able to choose one of two training plans: 

 

Very Beginner: A “Couch-to-5K” style run/walk program that is designed for the beginning runner or for someone coming back to running after an extended break (a year or more). Members choosing this plan will run twice weekly with the group and once on their own, gradually building up from the run/walk structure to mostly running at the conclusion of the program.

 

Advanced Beginner: A basic 5K training plan that works best for someone who has been running for at least 3 months, or has successfully completed the “Very Beginner” plan.  It fits well for those looking for a more structured training plan or those hoping to improve their speed, endurance, or 5K time. This group will be introduced to speed workouts structured to improve overall speed, endurance, and strength while running. Those who choose this plan will run twice weekly with the group and twice on their own.

 

Group enrollment cost is $30 and includes:

* Choice of training program

* 2 group runs per week, meeting Monday and Thursday evenings at 6PM

* Group tech shirt

* 10% discount at Duluth Running Co. for the duration of the program

* Members only group page
