Reasons to Run a 5K Series

5Kseries3 1. Doable:  A 5K is about 3.1 miles.  The distance is doable.  Most of us have super busy lives and we wait until Spring to begin training for longer distances like half marathons or marathons.  Why not keep yourself in the game this Winter and continue to train for a shorter, faster distance?  Keep your focus over the winter and start your Spring training ahead of the game AND keep that winter layer in check!

2. Time:  You can train for a 5K by running or walking just a few times a week and feel good about yourself without spending so much time away from the family.  Race day is a snap too. With a quick warm up, a race for 30-40 minutes, and a cool down, you can be home and eating breakfast with the family in a snap!

3. Faster: The 5K distance allows you to push yourself on race day.  Take this challenge and make it fun! Whether you are walking, jogging, or running hard, push yourself to a new level. The 5K distance will likely be your fastest race, so test your limits each month this winter.

4. Better:  Racing makes you fit.  Racing makes your everyday runs feel easier. Putting on a race number 3 months in a row can help  you learn how to avoid race day jitters, adapt to changing conditions, and make you a better competitor. 

5. Fresh:  If you are always training for a half marathon or marathon, an occasional break helps keep you fresh. train for the 5K, focus on the 5K and race the 5K. Setting new goals will help keep you excited and fresh.  5Kseries1

6. Focused:  We live in a cold and rainy climate. Sometimes it is difficult to stay focused on fitness when it is dark, rainy, and cold. Our 5K Series will  help you stay motivated to get outside and embrace the winter conditions.

7. Upgrade:  Racing the 5K? Then it’s time for you to lace up a pair of lightweight trainers – PRC can help you find a pair of racing shoes that make you feel light and speedy. Stop in to either PRC to try on some racing shoes today!
