Have you ever experienced the runner’s high that comes with conquering a 5K? There’s nothing quite like it. Whether it’s your first ever 5K, or your first in a long time, Fleet Feet has a beginner-friendly training program that will get you to the finish line of our most exciting 5K of the year: The Big Run!

We offer plans based on your current level of activity and experience from run/walk, intermediate and advanced walkers and runners. Plus, your coach and fellow training group members will provide the guidance and motivation you need to stay on track and have fun along the way. At Fleet Feet we are passionate about being an all inclusive place for runners and walkers of all paces to feel comfortable and welcome!

The Big Run 5K Training Program presented by Brooks culminates with the Big Run 5K on Global Running Day in June. More than a race, The Big Run is a celebration of running and the community it pulls together. It will take place on Wednesday, June 7, 2023 at 6pm at Holmes Lake. This will be a FREE 5K that is open to the public. There will be a clock at the race to see where you finish. However, this will not be an official chip-timed race.
