Next Step Hibernation to 5k has a start date of January 22, 2018 and will meet for 6 weeks with a graduation 5k race at a Striders Weekly Series Race in March. This is a no frills, get to work right away program to encourage a quick start to 2018. This program is for both beginning runners and more experienced runners that just need to get back off the couch after a Winter break. Although we only train as a group once a week, participants should expect to be devoting time for 3-4 workouts each week. The coordinator for this program will once again be the great Bill Arbelaez.

“I loved this program! I can’t say enough good things about it – it helped me with every aspect of my running – pacing myself, knowing what different paces felt like, running farther at a faster pace than I thought I could, and mostly the encouragement from knowledgeable coaches… it’s more than worth the fee paid. They worked with us a group, of course, but helped each of us individually as well. They kept us motivated” – 2011 participant
