The 10K Training Program is geared towards adults who can run 3 continuous mile who would like to increase their running endurance to 6.2 miles (10k). The coach will train you to run 10 kilometer (6.2 mile) race by building your endurance with a combination of walking and running over time. In addition, the training offers the benefits of improved cardiovascular fitness, reduced adverse health factors, safe training methods, and fun!
