PRC Winter 5K Series


Keep those wheels turning and the fire burning all winter long when you join in our seasonal 5K series. This low-key, high-yield trio of races gives you the chance to test your training, improve your times, and compete with yourself. Race in December and then focus on your 5K improvement. Train hard, do some speed work, try some hill repeats, or add some miles to your weekly load. Then come back in January and do it again. Your progress might surprise you! Race. Train. Repeat! Whether you are training for a PR or just looking for a great avenue to set some goals for 2021, The Winter 5K Race Series is the ideal platform.

We are planning for a robust in-person event with the intention that our events will follow all the current CDC guidance. We will see you this Winter!

Something For Everyone!

Why: Socialize and stay fit over the winter months. Set a goal for each race and try to improve each time, even if it’s only by one second! Challenge your neighbors, your college roommate in Redmond, or your brother in Boston. 

We believe that exercise and fitness is a major part of the BIG picture. And to those of you who have dusted off your high school PE uniforms, and busted out your old sneakers to give running or walking a second chance, WELCOME BACK! Rediscovering fitness is a silver lining of the challenges we have all faced in the past couple of years and we applaud each and every one of you.
