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.
The U.S. Coast Guard Training Center invites all runners, walkers, military and civilian, to participate in the Thirtieth Annual Coast Guard Day 5K Run/Walk & 1 Mile Fun Run. The 5K course starts and finishes on the Training Center located in historic Yorktown, Va. After leaving the base, the course winds its way through the scenic National Park Battlefield roadways famous for their views of the encampment areas, siege lines, and redoubts which were the site of the Revolutionary War's final decisive battle.
