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.
Friends join us on CRAZY 8's DAY 8-18-18 for International Beer Day where we celebrate in Clearwater with a morning 5K walk/run.

Of course our 501c3 "FInish Lines For Scholarships" will be offering the 888 shirt on race morning for a small donation if you are a collector or fan of race day shirts!

This is an electronically timed 5K but no age group awards. Awards will be presented to the first 10 males and first 10 females across the finish line (and as always “some special categories ” )…..the rest of us will be out there in good fun in an electronically timed but non-competitive 3.1 mile run or walk along the Ream Wilson Trail in Clearwater. The 1 mile begins just after the 5K start at 10:15 a.m. and is a finisher's division only. That means we don't record your time but you get all the same great goodies! Check in is race day only beginning at 9 a.m. at Buffalo Wild Wings in Clearwater. There is plenty of parking in the Buffalo Wild Wings Clearwater parking lot. The course is entirely flat and paved so it is stroller/family friendly. Our post race party is in the ice cold air conditioning inside Buffalo Wild Wings.
Check in opens at 9 a.m. at Buffalo Wild Wings 21688 US Hwy 19 N, Clearwater, FL 33765 located in the shopping plaza on the corner of US 19 and Drew.
The course is entirely paved so it is family oriented and stroller friendly. The 5K will begin at 9 a.m. with check in opening as early as 8 am at the venue. The 5K is electronically timed for all finisher's who complete the 3.1 mile distance in under 59 minutes. Awards are presented at the post race party immediately following the 5K to the top 10 males and top 10 female finishers along with some special awards for particpating youth and seniors. This maintains our very laid back crowd of participants. We hope that you will race with us once a month in Tampa Bay by selecting any races you find available in your schedule offered at www.727CanRace.com The RACE LOCAL experience includes becoming a party of the Xanadu Family. We love to see you cross the finish line. If you find that you cannot attend on race day for any reason let us know and we'll mail your thing to you or email you a code to transfer to any other race on our event calendar.
