      Learn To Run: 5k and 10k Training Groups

Get the most out of your spring and summer by increasing or improving your fitness level. Our 5K and 10k Training Group Program can help.

Whether you have never run a race or would like to try to build more consistency in your training; we are here for you with everything from choosing the right running shoe to completion of the event. Need motivation? Techniques for staying on track both physically and mentally will be addressed as well. We can help you learn to run, or learn to run faster.

This 11 week program tailors your individual needs in a fun setting with personal coaching and encouragement. It will culminate in the running of the Lilac Festival 5k or 10k (or both) on May 21, 2017.

Support for your running program will be supplemented by discussions on proper running shoe fit, dressing for various weather conditions, goal setting, stretching and more!

Group workouts will be on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm and Saturday mornings at 8:00 am. 

Come join in and share your running program with a supportive network.

The tuition for the program includes:

  • Coaching
  • Wednesday Night Workouts
  • Saturday Morning Group Runs
  • Weekly Training Plans
  • Reduced price for entry into the Lilac Festival races
  • Gender Specific Performance Running Shirt and Medved Store Specials  

What makes our training program different? 

  1. Personal attention. You are more than just a number. We offer a low runner to coach ratio meaning you get the attention you need.
  2. Low cost. Our 11 week training program is only $70. For less than the price of your daily cup of coffee you can help improve your health and fitness while creating new friendships.
  3. Experience. We are Rochester's original running store, helping local runners since 1984.
