The Reston Runners’ “10 Weeks to 10K Program” begins on Monday, July 18. The program culminates with the PRR Perfect 10K/10 Miler in Reston on Sunday, Sept. 25.
Says Reston Runners: “If you are looking for a fun, supportive, and informative program for men and women and you have the desire and experience to either move up from the 5K distance or improve your 10K time, this program can help you achieve your goals.”
The 10 Weeks to 10K program is designed and managed by certified coaches and is aimed at taking the runners already have and building on it to give them the endurance, speed, and confidence to complete a successful 10K or 10 miler, says Reston Runners.
Participants should have a minimum of 8-to-12 weeks of recent running or run/walk experience and the the capability of currently completing a 5K race. Training includes individual coaching support, as well as information on topics such as pacing, nutrition, cross training, and mental preparation.
Meetings are Monday evenings (6:30 p.m.) at Lake Fairfax Park. The Reston Runners also support a Tuesday and a Thursday evening run and walk/run from the Potomac River Running store in Reston starting at 6:30 p.m. Saturday morning runs/walks at 8 AM are from various locations around Reston and feature marked courses so no one gets off track.
The cost for the 10 week Training Program is $45, which includes a program incentive, a training plan, and coaching assistance throughout the Program. In addition, we’ve negotiated a special Program Discount for the Perfect 10 race that we pass onto you when you register. Registration closes on Saturday.
