What is the 5K Running Program all about?
The Shannon Center has been hosting beginner 5K training programs for over eight years! It's a great program for people who are getting back into running or have never run before. Participants are paired up with one of our five running coaches based on their pace. Participants will learn about proper form, proper breathing techniques and proper running apparel. If you have always wanted to run but felt discouraged or nervous this is a great program!
What is the 10K Running Program all about?
This is the second year that the Shannon Center has hosted a 10K Training Program. Participants wanting to train for a 10K should be able to run at least two miles at an 11-minute mile pace. There will be two to three coaches depending on the size of the group to help motivate and pace the runners every week. The goal is to Run the Ridge Run 10K after six weeks!
