We are looking forward to another successful season of running with an enthusiastic group of athletes who want to improve their fitness or simply reach a new goal. The Annapolis Striders extended its training program to include a 10K Group 15 years ago and since expanded that to 10K programs in both the spring and fall.
We’ll have three or four coaches who will lead the 10K Training Program as well as support from a number of veteran runners who will mentor you and your fellow runners, help the coaches out with logistics, or simply join us for an evening or Saturday AM run. While coaches will do our best to address your individual training needs and to help you excel if that is a goal, our focus is to educate, train and prepare the group for the Dawson’s Father’s Day 10K Run.
The 10K class is usually comprised of; runners who recently completed a Couch-to-5k program; runners who routinely run 2-3 miles for general fitness but want to increase their distance to the 10K mark once or twice a year; runners looking for a stepping stone program to a Half Marathon; youth participating in track and field or cross country at their school, and occasionally; a runner or two who simply want to improve their speed.
