Our Fleet Feet Bloomington Slightly Social Training Program is an 8-week program designed to keep you running in smaller, socially distant groups this summer. This program is designed to prepare runners for their first ever 5K or 10K or help seasoned runners meet a new performance goal. Program options include Beginner 5K, Speed Demons 5K, Beginner 10K or Speed Demons 10K.
The goal race for this program is the Sizzlin' Summer 5K August 12. However, you can also use this program to train for any race you choose or just to run with a small group of great people. Please note: this program will not have official mentors but you will have the support of your coaches and lots of veteran runners via our Facebook group as well as your small group.
There will be a Facebook Live Virtual Informational Meeting on Tuesday, June 9 at 7:15 pm - click here for our Facebook event to join us to learn more about the program and get your questions answered.
