What to Expect:
This 12-week program is broken into 2 phases:
Phase 1: The first 2 weeks will be step-by-step guidance with Coach Benny Ralston to go over the basics with you: learn the dynamic warm-up series of stretches, work on your running form and technique, running uphill, running downhill, learn the importance of proper footwear and gear. This first phase is to teach you all the fundamentals of running and give you the tools to stay safe and injury free.
Phase 2: The next 10 weeks you will be integrated in with members of our run club and finish off the clinic going at your own speed, pace, and comfort level. This program is progressive in nature and safely builds on itself to ensure the perfect balance of stress and recovery.
This clinic has helped many runners achieve their first 5K and beyond. It's also a great way to make new friends and become part of our wonderful running community!
PLEASE NOTE: NO REFUNDS! As well, no transferring to another person or postponing to future clinics.
