Whether you’re a beginner looking to complete your first 5K or an experienced runner aiming for a PR this fall, this program provides guidance, accountability, coaching support, and a network of other runners to help you reach your goals at your own pace this fall. This program is a hybrid of our group and virtual training programs, with three coached Sunday morning runs throughout the 9-week program, as well as coordinated, informal group runs on Sundays when there is not a formal coached group run. As with all of our programs, all runners get a complete training calendar, expert coaching, and access to coaches for support and questions throughout the duration of the program.
The goal races for this program are the Army 10-Miler and the Rockville 5K/10K, but schedules will prepare runners for any fall (October through December) race from the 5K through 10-Miler distance. Note to runners training for fall/winter half marathons: while the 10-miler schedule will be sufficient to prepare you to finish a half marathon, we strongly encourage you to consider our private virtual coaching for personalized coaching to help you achieve a PR. Contact us to discuss your goals and for more information.
