What is it?
A 5k Training Program is designed to help train anyone who has ever wanted to try to run a 5k (3.1 mile) road race. Training starts off slowly and progresses with the goal of running in the Run for Freedom 5k on July 4th in Derry, NH.
We educate participants on proper stretching, clothing, running techniques and diet. Many of our participants become active runners, including one who has gone on to run a marathon! This is the only known FREE 5k training program in NH. Complete the program and participate in the Run for Freedom to receive a free t-shirt to wear during the race as well as a free 2021 membership in the Greater Derry Track Club!
When is it?
This year the program will begin on May 4th at 6:00 p.m.
We will meet on Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 8:30 a.m.
Where is it?
For spring of 2021 we will meet at the Windham Depot end of the Windham Rail Trail. Set your GPS to 6 Depot Road, Windham, NH 03087.
What is the Run for Freedom 5K?
The Greater Derry Track Club began this race in 2014 to raise money for the Liberty House: a facilitator of healthcare, transitional housing, and job training for homeless veterans. We invite veterans to come join and celebrate this event on one of the most patriotic days of the year, Independence Day. Participate and enjoy the post race festivities, including food, refreshments, raffle prizes, and awards. Graduates of the 5k Training Program will receive a discount for the race.
