Training for a 5K



Training for a 5K race is an excellent introduction to fitness. Mid-Missouri has 5K events almost year round, so it’s easy to find a race. Training plans are available for people of all fitness levels. If you’re not ready to run, consider walking your first race.


See the links below for various training programs.
