Do I have to attend every workout?
Attendance at each workout is recommended but not required. If you miss a workout occasionally or if you're just not available on Wednesdays, its okay. Just be sure to do your workout at home.
Do you run in the rain?
Workouts are held RAIN or SHINE. The only time we'll cancel is if there is severe/dangerous weather like tornado warnings or lightning.
What if I am too slow?
You're not. This program is specifically for Beginners. If you are not currently active and would like to run a 5K, this program is designed for you!
Why are you charging for this program now? When is the free program?
Due to overwhelming interest in the program our operational costs have increased. We've hired more coaches and added some additional benefits that were not included in prior versions of the program (t-shirts, water bottles, better discount on race entry etc.)
Where do we meet on Mondays and Wednesdays?
The Mondays Wednesday meet up location is the Wilkins Street entrance to the Dequindre Cut in Eastern Market. If you're using GPS input "1800 Wilkins St" which is the approximate address of that location. HERE is a link to the map.
