There’s no better way to prepare for our run than by joining our official training partner - Southwest Endurance Training – for their Running Start – 5K Prep group. This 12-week training program is designed for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to gradually ease into running or maintain a distance up to 3 miles. It meets once a week on Thursday evenings in three different areas of town and incorporates a run/walk technique to allow the body to adapt to new levels of exercise and insure no one gets left behind. The atmosphere is supportive, fun and non-competitive.
