Fleet Feet Sports – 5K training program

The Fleet Feet Sports No Boundaries 5K training program is designed for beginner runners and people who are currently inactive or minimally active. 

There’s no time like the present to get up on your feet, start moving, and become a new and improved you. This 9-week safe, fun, and non-intimidating program is designed for beginners who would like to run, run/walk or walk in a 5K race.

Along the way we provide you with motivation, guidance and advice, weekly group training runs, and educational clinics on topics such as proper nutrition, choosing the right gear, and avoiding injury. There will be pace groups for every level of runner so, you’ll never be running alone. Training will start with 1 mile and build up to 3 miles.
