|Wed, 31 Mar 2010||First Step 5K Begins||Oakland Mills High School|
First Step - 2010
Planned start date of March 31st at 6:15am at the Oakland Mills High School Track
This program is for beginning runners. Participants must be able to run a minimum of 1 mile without stopping, in 12 minutes, or less, and would like to attempt their first 5K (3.1 miles).
We will be meeting once a week at the Oakland Mills High School track on Wednesday mornings, at 6:15am.
There will be experienced coaches who will provide workouts and discussion to help runners achieve their goals. Runners will be in groups of similar ability and goals with a coach to help with the workouts. Training schedules for groups will be followed with weekly coach feedback.
The 6-week session will start on March 31st with an orientation meeting covering the objectives of the training and an initial time trial of 1600m (one mile) to get an understanding of each runner’s level. Last session is May 12th, with a graduation race of the Striders’ weekly 5K race.
The cost is $20. Membership in the Howard Country Striders is not required... but heck, we'll still encourage it (join today!) The course includes a First Step premium as a finishing award.
