RUN FOR YOU
Whether you want to get Fit, go Fast, or run Far, Run For You© has a place and a pace for you! Each Run For You© training program features weekly sessions led by experienced, inspiring, caring, and CPR certified coaches who are passionate about your running! Runners are grouped with those of similar ability in a fun, non-intimidating atmosphere built for success! Visit the Run For You website.
Our 9-week RUN FIT program is based on the walk/run principal of building mileage and endurance. This puts less strain on your muscles in the early stages of training and allows you to safely progress from level to level. Whether you go fast, or slow, whether you walk or run – or both, you benefit by covering more miles per week. The goal of RUN FIT is to cover the distance of a 5K (3.1 miles) and run for the majority of it. Expect to still be incorporating walk breaks into your runs throughout this program and to complete a progressively longer weekend run. This benefits your body and mind as we adapt to incremental increases every week!
