Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
Train to do your first 5K run with us in our Couch to 5K (C25K) program! Up and Running will provide the training necessary to help you achieve your 5K goal. C25K participants will receive coaching, a weekly e-mail with a training plan, a shirt, and a $10 coupon for shoes at Up and Running. This group is for the beginning runner. Note: If we have to cancel due to inclement weather, Up and Running will post the cancellation on their Facebook page.
