Please join us for the Runner's Image Fall Training Program. This 7 week program is geared towards beginner to intermediate walkers and runners -- most past participants are running at 9+ min/mile or walking at 15+ min/mile. You will be ready to compete in any race distance up to a 7k. The program culminates on Saturday, October 14th which is the date of Nik's Home Run 7k & 1.5 Mile Walk. Please note, entry fees to Nik's Home Run 7k & 1.5M are not included.

We will meet twice a week, Tuesdays at 6:00 pm and Saturdays at 7:00 am, for group training. Participants will be divided into smaller groups by pace. Each week you will receive a schedule which will include your walk/run workouts as well as some additional suggested training for strength, flexibility and injury prevention. You will also get a custom designed long sleeve shirt perfect for those cool fall days!

We will meet in the City Market Pavilion across and just down the street from Runner's Image. This will enable us to meet while still being outside with plenty of space for social distancing. At this point, mask wearing is optional, please do what is comfortable for you. We will be following the current health guidelines as provided by the CDC and local governing bodies. We hope to be able to complete the full 7 weeks in person, but if mandated we will halt in person training--there will be no refunds if this occurs.

Cost is $70 and a portion of the proceeds after expenses will go directly to the Nikolas Ritschel Foundation. For more information about this wonderful charity please go to Entry fees to Nik's Home Run 7k & 1.5M are not included.
