HEALTHY FOR GOOD 5K TRAINING PROGRAM

Have you set a goal to run a 5K, or just always wanted to try running or get back into it? This is the program for you! This 12 week training program gives you personal access to one of our talented running coaches and mentors who will have you ready to cross the finish line at the Capital Region Heart Run on Sunday, June 7th. You will meet once a week at 6 pm for guided group runs on either Mondays at the Colonie Town Park in Cohoes or on Thursdays at the Crossings in Colonie, whichever better fits your schedule. For the remainder of each week you will be given a training schedule to follow, along with access to a private Facebook group. Throughout the 12 weeks, you can expect to learn about proper running technique, stretching, running attire and much more. We look forward to crossing that finish line with you! Be sure to register for 5K Run + Training, or for more information, please contact Jessica.Pettengill@heart.org.
