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.
We have heard you and we, too, are hungry for a local (South Sound) holiday trail racing option. Porter Creek Trail Runs offers three (3) race distances (5K, 10-mile, 25K), a training group (for those interested), and an opportunity to show your holiday spirit in the great outdoors of the PNW. The event is low key, low cost. There *will* be yule logs hidden on each of the three courses (find one and win a prize)! Awards will be given to top 3 male/female finishers in each event. All runners will get a finishing ornament. Ample aid stations and holiday party at the finish. Happy trails!
We can think of no better way to ring in the holiday season than on single track!
Start Time: 8:30AM 10-mile & 25K start; 8:45AM 5K start.
Training Group: Training group meets on Sundays for guided long runs and Tuesday nights for strength/speed. Guidance is provided for days you're not running with the group. Training group entry includes race entry. First meet-up is Sunday, October 20, 2019.
