No Boundaries is a 5K training program designed for beginning runners, walkers, and run/walkers. It is sponsored by New Balance. Over the course of 10 to 12 weeks, you'll learn running basics and, with the help of our experienced coaches and motivational mentors, train to run complete a 5K. The program includes two workouts per week, as well as seminars on important topics like nutrition, injury prevention, cross training. This is a great way to meet new running buddies, discover parks and trails around Raleigh, and increase your fitness level! (Scroll down past the video for FAQs.)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: When does the program meet?

A: We meet on Thursday evenings at 6 p.m. and Saturday mornings at 8 a.m.

Q: How much does the program cost?

A: Registration costs $95. This includes a technical shirt, coach-led workouts two days per week, a detailed training plan, and a series of short seminars on topics including running and walking form, injury prevention, cross-training, apparel and gear, nutrition, and race preparation strategies.

Q: I've never run before. Do you think I'll be left behind?

A: Of course not! This program is designed for beginners, though we also welcome experienced runners looking to get fitter and faster. We offer five separate pacing options:

  1. RUN - Two pace groups: <11 minutes/mile; 11-13 minutes/mile
  2. RUN/WALK, PLAN TO RUN - Start with short running intervals. Increase running intervals each week with a goal of running the entire 5K.
  3. RUN/WALK 1 - Start with short running intervals. Increase running intervals more gradually than PLAN TO RUN group.
  4. RUN/WALK 2 - Increase running intervals more gradually than RUN/WALK 1.
  5. WALK

All groups will be led by experienced running mentors, most of whom are former participants. Most seasons, we offer a Make it a Mile beginner program leading into the NoBo season for new runners to get you up to speed.

Q: If I have to miss a workout or two, does that mean I can't be part of the program?

A: Of course you can still be involved! We would love to have every training group participant at every run, but we understand that life and obligations may occasionally get in the way.

Q: How do I register?

A: Please register online through Fitvil by following the links below. If you've never participated in one of our training programs before, you'll need to first create a Fitvil account, and then register for the program.
