Every fall the beginning running class inspires a new group of runners to lace up their shoes. This popular 8 week class is back. This is truly a beginner’s class and is designed for someone who has never run before or has taken a long break from running. Our friendly and supportive coaches will help you go from coach to 5K in 8 fun filled weeks. The class starts out slow with a one mile walk-run-walk and gradually works up to the 5K distance. Past class participants have successfully completed the Pumpkin Run and have gone on to complete the Missoula Marathon or Half the following summer. The registration fee for the class is $10 for members and $35 for nonmembers.
Each participant will get coaching, leadership and advice from instructors Kelsi Camp, Spring Mills & Miranda Ming. Everyone will also get a training program, training hat, motivational guest speakers, two weekly group runs and a great group to train with. Visit the Run Wild Missoula website to sign up.
