Walk & Run 101: Beginner Training Program

Chase your next big goal with Columbus Running Company & Walk & Run 101, a beginner and intermediate 5k program

One step can change your life.  That one step can lead to the next.  And then the next.  And then before you know it, you're crossing that 5k finish line, arms held high.  

If you're considering either walking or running a 5k, join CRC's Walk & Run 101 program to receive support for every step along the way.  

Walk & Run 101 is a two month program designed to get you started with a walk or run routine, with an eye towards finishing a 5K at the end of the season.  

First, we'll host an initial kick-off clinic where our coaches will lay out the training plan for you.  There, we'll cover the basics of form, nutrition, hydration, and more.  Then, on Saturday mornings at 8am, you can join the fun at weekly coach-led trainings.  Additionally, each week you will receive coaching emails that will cover a variety of topics to further assist in your training and keep you motivated.  With all of this personal assistance, CRC’s Walk & Run 101 is not your typical “couch to 5K” program.
