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.
High school/college track teams, running clubs and community members of all ages who believe in healthy driving & healthy living.
The event is a campaign by the Shreya R. Dixit Memorial Foundation (www.shreyadixit.org) for building a distraction-free driving world.
