What is No Boundaries?
This 10-week 5K training program begins Thursday, October 2nd. It is designed beginning walkers, run/walkers, and runners. Over the course of the program, our coaches and experienced running mentors will provide you with tips and motivation, helping you to achieve your goal of completing a 5K (3.1 Miles). We will meet on Thursdays at 6 p.m. and Saturdays at 8 a.m. at our North Raleigh store for group runs. Our goal race is the Reindeer Romp 5K on December 6th.
Is this really for beginners?
Yes. We have five pace group options:
- RUN - Two pace groups: <11 minutes/mile; 11-13 minutes/mile
- RUN/WALK, PLAN TO RUN - Start with short running intervals. Increase running intervals each week with a goal of running the entire 5K.
- RUN/WALK 1 - Start with short running intervals. Increase running intervals more gradually than PLAN TO RUN group.
- RUN/WALK 2 - Increase running intervals more gradually than RUN/WALK 1.
Each group will be led by several experienced running mentors, many of whom are past participants in our training programs. During workouts, mentors will be available to share their experiences and provide tips, insights, and motivation.
What is the cost of the program?
The cost of the program is $95. It includes a technical shirt, coaching two days a week, a detailed training plan for the rest of the week, and abdominal workouts. We will give you an introduction to local running routes as well as the opportunity to meet running and walking partners.
As a participant, you will also have the opportunity to participate in seminars on topics including running and walking form, injury prevention, cross-training, apparel and gear, the benefits of compression, nutrition, race preparation strategies, and more!
