Tip Of The Day

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.

Father's Day 5K - Richmond

FATHER’S DAY 5K – YOU’RE MY HERO

*THIS IS A VIRTUAL RACE

Join us for our fifth annual FATHER’S DAY 5K virtual race! It’s time to celebrate your father the HERO! We will also be donating at least 15% of each registration to Team Hoyt, which works to build the individual character, confidence and self-esteem of America’s disabled and physically challenged young people through inclusion in all facets of daily life. In the spring of 1977, Rick Hoyt told his father, Dick Hoyt, that he wanted to participate in a 5-mile benefit run for a lacrosse player who had been paralyzed in an accident. Far from being a long-distance runner, Dick agreed to push Rick in his wheelchair and they finished all 5 miles, coming in next to last. That night, Rick told his father, “Dad, when I’m running, it feels like I’m not handicapped.”

*For a limited time get your official t-shirt and/or hoodie HERE.

What: This is a 5K virtual run (or walk) to celebrate the awesome Dads out there!

When: Complete your race any time in June 2018

*Medals and bibs will ship at the end of May. After that they will ship every 2 to 5 days.

Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).

Why:  Because this is our way of celebrating Father’s Day and to help raise funds for an amazing organization: Team Hoyt

Cost:  The price is$18 and that includes your medal, bib and shipping. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Team Hoyt.  *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them.
