Beginning Run/Walk 5K

Beginner 5K Program

Each year, we offer three sessions of our Beginner 5K program, a 12-week training program designed for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to gradually ease into running. Our program incorporates a run/walk technique to allow the body to adapt to new levels of exercise. The atmosphere is supportive, non-competitive and fun.

Our Beginner 5K program is designed to help you get started running and keep going, show you how to run without feeling out of breath and hurting all over, and how to run safely and efficiently. The goal race for this program is to complete a 5K (3.1 miles) race.

The program is right for you if you:

  • Can walk at a brisk pace comfortably for 30 minutes, a few times a week
  • Are pain-free from injury for at least three months
  • Would like to be able to run/walk three miles
  • Want to meet some great people.

Our programs change lives; let it change yours.


Fall 2016 Training Details:


In addition to the above, you can choose to add on additional cross training to your program for an additional $25:

Cross-Training Workout:

We feel so strongly that cross-training makes you a better runner that we have added an affordable cross-training option to our training group offerings.  For only $25, you will receive a pass valid for 10 visits to Marcel’s Total Fitness gym (located next to our Tanque Verde location).  This pass gives you full access to all gym equipment as well as the ability to participate in any fitness class offered, including spin, yoga, core fusion, fitness and boot camp.  Individual personal training is not included.  For those on the Northwest side of town, Marcel will be bringing his workouts to the Fleet Feet Oracle Crossing store.  Weekly in-store training sessions (tentatively planned for Thursdays) will include dynamic stretching, resistant band strength training, dumbbell work, full core work out, functional strengthening and body weight training.
