The inaugural Pub Run Training Series Program will be aimed at helping participants of all skill and experience levels get into shape for the annual Bloomington St. Patrick’s Day 5K. The training group will meet every Tuesday and Thursday at 6:00 pm at varying local pubs. Group training runs will officially begin Tuesday, February 12th. Each training session will focus on running and walk-running, specifically to a 5K race.

The group on Tuesday will meet at Maggie Miley’s Irish Pub in Uptown Normal and Thursday groups at the VFW Post 454 in Bloomington at the intersection of Lincoln and Morrisey.
