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, say, Wednesdays, its okay. Just be sure to do the workout on your own.
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 will be at or near the RUNdetroit store in Midtown Detroit. We are currently exploring the best option for our Monday and Wednesday meet ups and will make an announcement via email to registered participants before April 2nd.
I can already do a 5K. What if I want to run farther?
We're excited to announce that this year, for the first time ever, we'll be offering a continuation of our 3.101 training to take Beginners that are experienced at a 5K to a 10K later in the summer and the Free Press Half Marathon this Fall. You are not required to participate in this session of 3.101 in order to join our 10K or Half Marathon programs. Registration for the continuation programs will open in June. Follow us on Facebook or join our email list to stay in the loop.
