Beginner 5k Training - Spring '18


Often, the first step is the hardest and that's why No Boundaries was created.  This program is your first step to a new and healthier lifestyle. It utilizes the run/walk method of training and very gently increases the distance and run time each week. We start with one mile, and run one minute and walk two minutes. Nine weeks later, our training run is 3.25 miles in which we run 3 minutes, walk 1 minute. Little by little each week, you grow and build upon the previous week. This is a supportive, non-competitive class for anyone that can already power walk 1 mile. Join the fun and see what you can accomplish!

In April 2018, we will also be offering a 10K class for those who would like to continue on to the 10K distance.  Read more about our 10K group here.  Purchase BOTH the Spring '18 5K/10K classes for just $75!
