Fall 8K Program

October 5 – December 7, 2019

PGRC’s 8K training program will support participants as they increase capacity and strength, building from a base of 2 – 3 miles to a long run of 5 miles. The program includes two coached runs each week, with tips on stretching, winter running safety, and growing stronger as a runner through different types of running sessions and cross training recommendations.  The target graduation race is the Wright Stuff 8K race.
