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.
Start off your Saturday with a morning 5K through Arlington! Rock Recovery is teaming up with Ballston CrossFit for our summer 5K. Join us for a light run (or walk!) from the Ballston CrossFit gym through the Custis Bike trail in Arlington, VA. After the event, we will meet back at the gym for some light refreshments and lawn games. Rock Recovery Executive Director, Christie Dondero Bettwy will share her personal, inspiring story of recovery and info about our life saving treatment program. This is an untimed event and all fitness levels are welcome. All proceeds will go to support Rock Recovery’s mission and help individuals struggling with disordered eating exercise and body image issues.
