Red Coyote is offering IN-PERSON and/or VIRTUAL options for the Fall 2021 Newbie Program starting August 16th, 2021 that is training for the Runtoberfest 5k on October 17th! Red Coyote wants to help people keep moving and stay motivated, so this program is FREE! All participants will receive schedules through email and ALL other communication will go through Red Coyote's private Facebook group that is exclusive to this program. To help stay accountable participants can post their workouts to the Facebook group page or email it to coach Heather Crawford.

Always wanted to be a runner, but not sure how or where to start? Red Coyote has trained over 3,000 newbies to run their first 5K! We have the experience and the knowledge to help you reach your goals. From day one, you will be part of a running/walking community, our “Training Pack,” and you will form great online friendships through your fitness journey while the motivational atmosphere will keep you engaged and focused on your goals .


This program is designed for people who have never run before or who have not run for a very long time, and want a structured introduction to help get in shape without getting injured along the way. We start with very gentle workouts combining walking and running, and give your body plenty of time to adapt to running over the 9 weeks of the program as we build to the goal of running a 5K/3.1 mile distance.

• 9-week program in-person or virtually building toward 5K/3.1 mile goal
• Positive support, coaching, and a fun group to keep you motivated!
**For Sale this season is a Training Program Shirt for $15.00!
