Spring Training Programs
Spring "Mile 0" Beginner Program
The DRC Spring “Mile 0” Program is a 12-week program designed to help new or newly returning runners learn to train and complete a 5k race in a fun, social, non-competitive atmosphere. We want to educate and encourage new runners to train effectively and adopt a more active lifestyle. The “Mile 0” program begins with walking, gradually mixes in running, and then builds up to runs of 3 miles or more. The group runs will help participants stay accountable and motivated by others going through a similar experience. This program will begin on January 16th and end on April 2. All groups will meet at the DRC clubhouse on Saturdays at 7:00 AM and Tuesdays at 7:15 PM. The cost for this program will be $40.00.
