2023 Winter Warriors 5k Training Program

November 27, 2022 - February 11, 2023

This is an outdoor activity. Program Prerequisites: Participants should be capable of walking briskly for 20 minutes and should check with their health care professional prior to starting any fitness program. Whether you are new to running or trying to return to running, this is a outdoor program for you. This class is intended for all who are looking to “get off the couch with no running experience at all” and do a 5K (3.1 miles) distance. Registration and fees for those races are separate from this training program, and participation in those races is not required to join the training program. The Program is a ten week run/walk program starting with a week one, 1 minute run, 2 minute walk over 20 minutes, three times a week with a gradual increase of running time of about 1 minute a week until week ten with a 20 minutes continuous run. Pre-run dynamic warm up exercises and walk and post-run cool-down walk, static stretches are included. Graduation race goal is the Valentine's Day 5K to be held on February 11, 2023. Race fees are separate and NOT included in membership fees. A race preview run is available to participants the weekend before the race. The Program features discussions on shoes, running attire and gear, proper running form, hill work, heart rate zones, injury prevention, runner’s safety, nutrition, and cross training.
