Are you an employee of Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS)? Have you ever wanted to be able to incorporate running into your lifestyle, or improve your finish time(s) and distance? 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 you are looking to take your running to the next level, spring presents a great opportunity to go after those goals!

We are honored to have the opportunity to coach MCPS employees for eight years.  The Spring 2024 Training Program will begin on Monday, April 8th and will run for ten (10) weeks through the end of the school year, with the option for runners to do the Suds and Soles 5K on June 15th (registration separate and optional). The program is virtual and includes weekly emails as well as the ability to check in with coaches. 

Comprehensive Training Schedule and Coaching Support

This program is appropriate for new runners, runners who are returning after a hiatus, or those who are already running and would like to improve their finish times or increase their distance.  Participants will receive a comprehensive 10-week training calendar specific to their experience and goals (Beginner or Advanced), weekly emails with training support and running-related information, as well as the ability to email experienced, certified coaches with questions or concerns.   

There is no charge for this program (participants who register for the race will be responsible for the race registration fee), but all participants must register and complete a runner profile here. Training calendars and program information will be sent on Friday, April 5th.  Contact us at with any questions.
