Event Description

In case you haven’t heard...we're bring back the beginning runner program this summer! Running can be a great workout and running with the Badgerland Striders is a social way to run. Join us as you start (or restart) your running journey.


The Stride to 5k Program kicks off on Thursday, June 13 at 6:30pm. We will meet weekly on Thursday evenings at the Hales Corners Library in the lower level Ben Hunt Room. Each meeting will feature a group run and a discussion with established runners, physical therapists, personal trainers, and other running related topics. The group runs will be split into multiple groups based paces and lead by experienced runners. We will use a run/walk approach to build up your distance.  The plan will have one weekly group run and two runs for you to complete on your own.


The Strider to 5k Program will meet Thursday, June 13, 20, 27, July 11, 18, 25, and August 1. There will be no meeting on Thursday, July 4 - but you are  encouraged to either run the Firecracker Four Presented by the Badgerland Striders (1.4 miles or 4 miles) or volunteer - we will volunteer together as a group.  More info will be provided at the sessions.


The Stride to 5k Program graduation will be held on Wednesday, August 7 at the Badgerland Striders State Fair Fun Run at Hoyt Park.
