Get in shape and raise funds for your neighbors in need!
Train with an Expert Coach to Run a 5K, 10 Mile or half-marathon race. Both experienced runners and beginners are welcome to train and achieve their running goals. Participants may choose to run in the Sunday, April 24, 2016 George Washington Parkway Classic 5K, 10 Mile or separate half-marathon race.
The 10 Mile training will take place Saturday mornings at 9:00 a.m. starting Saturday, February 6 through April 16, 2016, and the 5K training will take place Saturday mornings at 9:00 a.m. from February 27 through April 16, 2016. Please note: The 10 Mile training was originally scheduled to begin Saturday, January 30 but has been postponed due to snow.
Trainings are held at Bluemont Park, 601 Manchester St., at the corner of Wilson Boulevard and Manchester St. in Arlington, VA. At the intersection, enter the Bluemont Park parking lot; we will meet at the pavilion at the far end of the parking lot. Training runs will start at the W&OD Trail 3.5 mile marker. The cost for the Resolve training program is $85.00, which includes a $25 donation to Arlington Thrive.
Participants will also be encouraged to raise funds for Arlington Thrive to provide emergency financial assistance for our neighbors in need. More information about fundraising will be provided during the training program.
This training program will use the Jeff Galloway training method to help people of all fitness levels or running experience prepare to complete their chosen race, 5K, ten miler, or half-marathon. Participants will learn to include regularly scheduled walk breaks with running to help increase endurance and general overall fitness at a gradual and safe pace. This training method reduces the risk for injury because it reduces the wear and tear on the legs during training sessions.
