Registration is now closed for our summer 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. 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 The Dawson Lake Dash on Sunday August 29, 2021. However, you can also use this program to train for any race you choose or just to run with great people.
Our program kick-off and first workout will be Tuesday, July 6 at 6:00 pm.
When: Weekly group training runs will be at 6:00 pm on Tuesdays and 8:00 am 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 (does not include race fee but program participants receive a special race discount)
Additional Info: This program incorporates a walking warm-up and cool-down and run/walk intervals. Over the course of eight weeks participants will build up to run/walk 3.5 miles. Participants should be able to comfortably walk at least 15 minutes at the start of our program.
