Do you want to start running or get back into running? Richmond Road Runners Club (RRRC) has the perfect 6-week program to help you start and succeed. All runners and walkers welcome!

The New Runners Training will meet for six (6) weeks on Wednesday evenings (6:00-7:30 PM) at Richmond's Bryan Park. The first session is Wednesday May 8, 2019.

Each evening's program will end with a cool-down, running tips from Coach Herv, and a recommended activity plan for the week. 

By the end of the program, you will be able to run or run/walk for 3 miles or 5K (5 kilometers)...the distance of many popular local runs and races.
