This 8 week training program is open to all members of the community interested in getting in shape to walk or run a 5K.  All fitness levels are welcome.  We are partenering with the Thames Elementary Ready, Set, Glow Run that will be held on November 1, 2014.  To register for this race visit:  www.jotform.us/ThamesPTA/5K  There is no race fee for the kids 1 mile fun run.

Trainings will take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays at 5:30 September 9th - October 30th at the Bruce and Virginia Wilgus fitness trail in front of the Payne Center at USM.  Training sessions last about 30-45 minutes. Participants will be given a training schedule to train on their own for any day they can not make it to the group training.

A parent or guardian must be present during the training for kids.  Parents/Guardians are encouraged to participate in the 5K training while the kids are training.  There will be a separate trainer for kids.  The kids training will take place in the middle of track.
