Always wanted to be a runner, but not sure how or where to start? Red Coyote has trained over 2,500 newbies to run their first 5K! We have the experience and the knowledge to help you reach your goals. From day one, you will be part of a running/walking community, our “Training Pack,” and you will form great friendships through your fitness journey while the motivational atmosphere will keep you engaged and focused on your goals.

This program is designed for people who have never run before or who have not run for a very long time, and want a structured introduction to help get in shape without getting injured along the way. We start with very gentle workouts combining walking and running, and give your body plenty of time to adapt to running over the 9 weeks of the program as we build to the goal of running a 5K/3.1 mile distance. There are no stopwatches or pressure of any kind, just positive support. The cost of this 9 week program is just:$99 if you sign up BEFORE midnight 12/08/19, OR $109 if you sign up 12/09/19 or later.
