LMJS will be offering another beginning running program this winter 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, or approximately one lap around Lake Merritt.
These training sessions will be held for five consecutive Saturdays at 10:00am with a 5K race the fifth week and will involve a $25 fee for LMJS member or $30 for non-members. Our runs will sample a few of the gorgeous East Bay area trails. The first will be held Saturday, February 15th at 10:00 am culminating with the Oakland Running Festival 5K , March 23rd (race fee extra). 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.
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 10 and a maximum of 25 participants, to keep things manageable.
