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.
Why wait until the end of the year when Christmas comes to Clearwater in July! That's right, it's Christmas in July and this 5K ends with a finish's medal that doubles as a Christmas tree ornament! It will remind you how awesome you were to reach the finish line in the heat of the summer in July.
