5k No Boundaries
Our first 2024 session starts Sunday, February 25 and ends Sunday April 21.
Our Goal Race is the Pleasanton PPIE Run For Education 5k.
Discover the Power of Movement!
Our eight-week 5k No Boundaries program is designed for the novice runner and walk/runner, or for those who would like to return to running. Although, all levels are welcome! If you recently completed Make It a Mile or you can comfortably run/walk a mile under ~14 minutes, this is the right training option for you. Participants are surrounded by a team of dedicated, motivated people all working toward the goal of becoming healthy and strong by finishing a 5k.
Discover the Power of Community!
The camaraderie of training with a group week after week will take your training to the next level. When the workouts become more rigorous, you'll have the collective strength of the group to keep you moving forward. When you crush a key milestone, the group will be there to celebrate your achievement. And on those early mornings when you just don't feel like getting out of bed, the training group will keep you accountable.
Discover the Power of Support from Your Coach!
Using the Run/Walk method, the program provides a guided training plan that helps you gradually increase your distance and speed as you progress towards your goals. We meet 2x weekly for group workouts; your plan will include additional activities that you complete on your own. Your coach will check in with you at every training run to keep track of your progress, keep you motivated, and give you individualized feedback.
At the end of the program, you will be able to finish a 5k (3.1 mile) course. You will have learned the importance of proper form, stretching, injury prevention, hydration and nutrition - all the tools needed to maintain your new fitness routine.
And very importantly, we provide a positive, fun, non-judgmental environment that will lift you to success!
