Avoid Skipping Recovery
Listening to your body is key to avoiding injury and burnout. Your body can actually grow stronger when you are at rest. The process of training includes workouts that are strategically placed along with rest days, which provides stimulation during the activity and recovery when you are at rest. If you are new to running, it is important not to push yourself to hard. Injuries can pop up when training advances too quickly. If your body is giving you warning signs, listen and take the extra time off so you can fully adjust and recover to meet your specific fitness needs.
SAME DAY REGISTRATION OPENS AT 7:30 AM IN THE BOATHOUSE (UPSTAIRS)
Have you ever thought to yourself, "I'd love to find away to support people in the community suffering from terminal illnesses?"
The 9th Annual Valentine's Day 5K & 10K on 2/9/2019, in North Park has raised necessary funds to provide gifts of service to local people suffering from malignant brain tumors and cancer through the Celebrate Life Campaign. This has only been possible because of the support of people like YOU!
This year's events will depart from the North Park Boat House. The 5K will depart from the Boathouse parking lot, traveling left onto Walter, to Lake Shore and turnaround at Kulich Grove.
The 10K will loop the lake. It will depart from the Boathouse parking lot and loop right onto Walter, then Pearce Mill Road before following the lake in a clockwise direction. The 10K will have a slight elevation. Both courses embody the beauty and picturesque views of North Park Lake.
Maps of each race can be found on the RSG1 Foundation, Facebook page:
Long sleeve event shirts will be given to those who register online. (A limited number of shirts will be available for same day registration.)
Post race events include medals-awards for top finishers, and raffles.
