LMJS will be offering a beginning running program this fall to help you get in shape for a 5K! This program is designed for those who want to work up to a 5K which is 3.1 miles.
These training sessions will be held for five consecutive Saturdays at 10:00am with a 5K race the sixth week and will involve a $30 fee for LMJS member or $35 for non-members.
Our runs will sample a few of the gorgeous East Bay area trails. The second class will be held Saturday, November 7th at 10:00 am at the Berkeley RoadRunnerSports. The class will culminate with the lively Dam Jingle Bell Dash, a 5K race at San Pablo Reservoir to be held on Saturday, December 5th (race fee extra).
Directions to the Berkeley RoadRunnerSports store, located at 1326 10th St, Berkeley (10th and Gilman):
- Take 80E/580W to Gilman St (exit 12)
- Drive 0.6 miles
- Turn right onto 10th St and find parking
We'll cover topics such as running shoes, running form, safety, injury prevention and hydration and nutrition along the way.
We'll provide training schedules, maps, and lots of encouragement. You'll need to come ready to run every Saturday with a water bottle and towel for the end.
Check out the class outline and a list of class locations for more information on this class.
This training is appropriate for anyone who wants to work up to a 5K and for those who haven't run for awhile and want to begin again. RSVP required for this program, with a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 30 participants, to keep things manageable.
