Training Regimens:

–Adults - “Couch to 5k”: If you have never run or need a tune up, this program is perfect for you. Coaches will slowly build your endurance to move you off the couch to running a 5k.

–Kids - Train for Youth 5k or Mile: This program is for pre-high school youth ages 8 - 13. It is open to first time runners and kids who would like to increase their running speed. It’s also great for youngsters who want to get more fit for soccer or another sport, or who simply want more fitness and fun.

–Families - Train to Run or Walk the Family Mile or 5k Family Walk: “Actions speak louder than words.” Parents, show your kids your commitment to a healthy lifestyle by exercising with them. Train together to run or walk Spirit Run’s Family Mile or 5k Walk. If your child prefers to train with other kids, he/she can train for the Youth Mile or Youth 5k while you train to run or walk the Adult Mile or Adult 5k.
