5K Training Program Returns This Spring
Running is an accessible, inexpensive and effective way to improve your health and fitness, relieve stress, and boost your confidence. Whether you have never run or it has been a while since you last ran, the warmer weather is the perfect time to start training.
Following a successful fall session, the MCPS Spring Virtual Group 5K Training Program will be held from March 20 until May 29.
Participants will receive a comprehensive 10-week training calendar, weekly emails with training support and running-related information, and the ability to email certified running coaches with questions or concerns. The training calendar begins with run/walk intervals and progresses safely and gradually towards continuous running. It also includes strength workouts and form drills. Participants also have access to a private Facebook group to find running partners.
