Spring 10K/10-Miler Group Training Program Registration OPEN!

Sign up now for the Run Farther & Faster Spring 10K/10-Miler Group Training Program, coached by two experienced Road Runner Clubs of America (RRCA) certified coaches and top-ranked, accomplished runners. We pride ourselves on individualized attention- our number one motivation is helping runners of ALL levels run farther, faster while having a great time and learning to love running!

The third year of our popular 10K/10-miler training program starts on Sunday, February 5 and targets the Cherry Blossom 10-miler on April 1 and the beginner-friendly Pike’s Peek 10K on April 29, 2012. This program is for runners of all levels- beginners who are able to run two miles (no pace requirement) will work towards building endurance for the Pike’s Peek 10K, a net-downhill course down Rockville Pike, beginning at the Shady Grove Metro and ending at White Flint Mall. More advanced runners will train for the Cherry Blossom 10-miler. Beginner runners are encouraged to run the Cherry Blossom 5K Run/Walk. NOTE: Registration for Cherry Blossom 10-miler AND 5K is through LOTTERY selection; runners must enter the lottery between December 1 and December 9 and lottery winners will be announced on December 13. Click here for more information. If you can’t run the two miles required to start the program, contact us and we can help you build up to the necessary base mileage over the next few months!

Programs are tailored to individual levels of fitness and goals, and coaches work with runners to help them achieve their personal goals. Runners of all ages are welcome, and this comprehensive program includes:
