PR5K Training Group
Registration is now open!
The Dave's Running PR5K Training Group is back! Now entering its second year, the 2013 edition looks to be far bigger and even better. New for this year, we have expanded to the Findlay area as we look to take our hit training programs to our friends down south.
Whether you've never run a step or you've been at it for years, the PR5K Training Group is for you. To clarify, a "PR" is a "personal record", or best time, and a 5k is a 3.1 mile distance. For those of you that are new to running, we will have a group within the program designed to progress you gradually from a walk/jog up to running the entire distance without stopping. Experienced coaches will oversee this group as well as separate pace groups aimed at completing the race at 6 minutes a mile, 7 minutes a mile, 8 minutes a mile, 9 minutes a mile, and 10+ minutes a mile.
The cost of registration is $125, plus a $7.50 service charge. That price includes a $100 voucher good for any in-store purchase. It's like getting a training program for $32.50! In addition, each runner will receive a full eight week training program, a PR5K training t-shirt, a book full of coupons good for in-store discounts, and a discounted entry to a first rate 5k event at the conclusion of the program.
In addition to a eight week training plan, we will be meeting twice weekly to conduct organized speed workouts with our pace groups. In Toledo, we will meet Monday evenings at 6:30 as part of our summer Metropark Monday program. We will meet at Wildwood Metropark during the month of June and Swan Creek Metropark during the month of July. We will also meet at the Perrysburg Junior High Track on Thursday evenings at 6:30 for the duration of the program. For our participants in the Findlay area, we will meet at the Donnell Stadium track on Monday evenings and our Findlay store on Wednesday evenings, both nights also at 6:30. Both our Toledo and Findlay groups will enjoy visits from guest speakers and vendor tech-reps throughout.
Because of separate events that we are gearing the training towards, the Findlay program will start and finish two weeks after the Toledo program. The Toledo program will begin Monday, June 3rd at Wildwood and run through the Tigertown 5000 in Liberty Center, Ohio on Saturday, July 27th. The Findlay program will begin Monday, June 17th at Donnell Stadium and run through the Up Up and Away 5k in Findlay on Saturday, August 10th.
