Spring Friday Morning Program for Beginners!

Back by popular demand, we'll be kicking off our Spring Friday Morning Beginner group program on Friday, April 20! This low-key, 6-week program is for anyone who wants to experience the sense of accomplishment that comes with completing a 5K. If you can walk briskly for about 30 minutes, you can do this program that is based on progressively longer run intervals and shorter walk intervals, building up to a goal of running 5K (3.1 miles). Options are available for runners who are already running several miles at a time but who are looking to improve their speed at the 5K distance or take the next step and complete a 10K. The goal race is Jeremy's Run 5K/10K in Olney on Memorial Day, so there is an option for everyone (including those who want to jump in slowly with a 1-mile fun run!)

Join a supportive (and fun!) group of aspiring runners for weekly group runs on Friday mornings, meeting at 9:45 at B'nai Israel, 6301 Montrose Road in Rockville. Strollers are welcome! Participants will receive a comprehensive training calendar including suggested strength training and cross-training. As with all of our programs, all runners get personalized coaching support from certified, experienced and accomplished coaches and information on running-related topics such as stretching, strength training, injury prevention, nutrition, gear, and race day preparation. Participants also get a discounted entry to Jeremy's Run and a Run Farther and Faster discount on gear from

Cost for the 6-week comprehensive program is just $50- less than $10 a week and the best bargain in town! Register by selecting "Spring 5K Friday a.m. Program" from drop-down menu in sidebar to the right. Please contact us with questions or for more information.

** If you can't make it on Friday mornings but are interested in training for a 5K this spring, we are also offering an 8-week Wednesday morning program, meeting from 9-10 a.m. in Rockville. Click here for more information!
