Registration is now closed for our summer 2023 program
Our Fleet Feet Bloomington 5K Training Program is an 8-week program designed to help you cross the finish line of your first 5K, cross it again after taking time off from running, or help seasoned runners meet a new performance goal. Program options include Beginner & Intermediate 5K. Whether you are brand new to exercise or are currently doing a run/walk routine this program is for you!
We believe it is important to train with a goal in mind, usually (but not always) that goal is a race. For this program our graduation race will be St Jude Run/Walk on Saturday September 23, 2023. However, you can also use this program to train for any race you choose or just to run with great people.
There will be an optional informational session on Tuesday, July 18 at 6:00 p.m. at the store. Come learn more details about the program to determine if it is the right one for you. The first workout will be Tuesday, July 25 at 6:00 p.m.
When: Weekly group training runs will be at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and 8:00 a.m. on Saturdays.
Where: The group will meet at Fleet Feet Bloomington, Tipton Park, Rosa Parks Commons, Rollingbrook Park and other locations in Bloomington-Normal. Participants will receive a program calendar that highlights where the group will meet each week as well as weekly email reminders.
Program Cost: $70 // Program cost does not include race registration fees.
Additional Info: The Beginner and Intermediate programs incorporates a walking warm-up and cool-down and run/walk intervals. Over the course of eight weeks participants will build up to 3.5 miles. Participants should be able to comfortably walk at least 15 minutes at the start of our program.
