The Gobble Gallop 5K Training Group is designed to get people ready to run the Gobble Gallop 5K. The training program goes from October 5th to November 26th. All ages, genders, and abilities welcome! Past groups have seen father-daughter pairs, high school students, new parents, and retirees.


We will have an informational meeting and short run/walk on October 5th at Duluth Running Co. at 5:30pm. This is great time to ask questions and meet the coaches.


Members can choose one of the 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 $40 and includes:

* Choice of training program

* 2 group runs per week, meeting Monday and Thursday evenings at 5:30PM from Duluth Running Co.

* Group tech shirt

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