Can you tell me more about the 5K Finish Training pace groups?

All groups will start at 2 miles and work up to a 4 miles. 5K Finish includes three pace groups:

·         Walking – Walkers will walk the entire training program.

·         Interval Running (Run/Walk) – Interval Running includes run/walk intervals running for 2 minutes and walking for 1 minute

·         Running – Running the whole time with no breaks

Here's the great thing: if you start with one group and decide you want more of a challenge, or less, you can change groups! Make sure to talk with Coach Leslie and your mentors for advice! Walkers can move to intervals, runners can move to intervals, intervals can move to walking, etc.

Any rules?

Your safety is our number one priority. With your safety in mind, we have created the below rules and requirements by which all Fleet Feet Running Club participants and mentors must abide.
