If you’ve thought about running, but didn’t know how to start, or you’ve tried running and gave up because it was too hard, this program is for you! Our coaches will help you progress from not running at all to running up to 3 miles after following our 8-week program.

Zero to Weekly assumes you have never run before, and gives you the tools to run a 5K (3.1 mile) distance by the end of the program. Coaches will meet participants for a workout once a week, and you will be expected to repeat this workout two to three more times before the next week’s meeting. At the end of the session, participants may optionally run a complimentary Striders Weekly 5K race.

This is a low-key, no-fuss, family-friendly program. We welcome men and women over 18 years of age. Your enrollment fee includes one free entry to a Striders Weekly race. If you are not already a Strider, you can sign up here.
