5K races have become the most popular road racing distance because they offer something for everyone. Completing the 3.1-mile distance is a great goal for novice runners and covering it with sustained speed is a challenge for more advanced runners. Our 10-week Advanced 5K Training Program will prepare advanced competitors to peak for the UniGroup United Way 5K on Saturday, July 8th. It all begins with a formal, "no running" required meeting on Sunday, April 30th at 4:00pm at Fleet Feet Des Peres.
Our Advanced 5K Training Program is for experienced runners who have made the transition from completing to competing and who have been following a structured training program for at least one year.
