The run will start as soon as the information session is over -usually around 7:15 and go no later than 8:00 pm (this includes warm-up, walk/run and cool down).

  • There will be a walk group(s) depending upon interest.
  • There will 6 different run groups ranging from beginner to advanced.  Be assured, with 6 different color groups, there will be a group for everyone! The group leaders will set a walking or running pace that is comfortable for the majority of their group. If the pace is too slow or too fast please do your best to remain with the group and next week you can move groups accordingly. No one will be left behind! Try to get at least one more run in during the week to help increase your endurance.

good pair of running shoes will help you have a great workout each week. They will prevent unnecessary discomfort and injuries. Check out Brainsport for the best shoes for you.  Runners and triathletes work there, and they will give you the best shoes for what your feet need.
