10K Course
5K Course

Running a 5K is an excellent goal for new runners. You’ll get lots of motivation, as well as enjoyment, from participating in a race, and 5K (3.1 miles) is the perfect distance for first-timers. If  you are not quite ready for a 5K (3.1 miles) race then they have a 4.3K walk to get you into the environment and see that this distance is attainable and would not take much more to do a 5K.  For those who want to focus in on the 5K and train there are many programs out there, such as the couch to 5K program.  Then there is the 10K (6.2 miles) for those who had done some races and are ready to go up in distance to test themselves.  If you had some questions about training, do not hesitate to contact me: 

“If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.”  – John Bingham, running writer and speaker
