Build a Foundation
Add some variety to your exercise routine. Run one day and strength train the next. This will not only hold your interest in the workouts longer, but it will give your body the time it needs for recovery. Additionally, you are covering more muscle groups throughout the body and keeping the workouts motivating and different.
To build up endurance for your 5K race include some interval training as part of your regimen. Use hill sessions and up-tempo to your runs to do this. Hold a steady running pace where you do not feel like you are just about to die, but that you can keep going.
Head to the track for shorter interval runs while learning to pace yourself. Learn to conserve your energy during the first part of the race and then to let go in the second half so you can make it to the finish line of you 5K race.
Run through beautiful Summit County Colorado, with the all distances starting up on Boreas Pass and finishing on Main Street Breckenridge. The majority of all races will take place on a paved rec path, with lots of downhill to start you off and a few gentle rolling hills as you make your way back to Breckenridge. All three races will finish amongst cheering fans on historic Breckenridge Main Street!
All runners will receive a wood finisher medal and a long sleeve gender specific tech shirt! Plus we have one of the best finisher meals around!
Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 overall in each distance, and the 1st place finishers in each age group. We also have a raffle and other fun prizes!
