Since 2007 Genesis has prepared new runners to run their first 5k and has helped experienced runners run their fastest 5k. Through a coaching program of thorough preparation, incremental training and accountability from a coach and other participants, runners gain the confidence and preparation they need to finish their first event. 

What: This is a 9 week training program starting Tuesday, May 1st to prepare for a 5k on or around June 29th depending on your class location.  The program is intended for beginner runners.  Walkers and Genesis graduates will also have plans to follow.  For new runners, no prior running experience is required.  

When: Group training sessions are each week on Tuesdays for the 9 week period.
