Walk & Run 101: Beginner 5k Program

Chase your next big goal with Columbus Running Company & Walk & Run 101, a beginner and intermediate 5k program


Our Summer 2020 season was “virtually” made for you! Walk & Run 101 is a two month program designed to get YOU started with a walk or run routine, with an eye towards finishing a 5K at the end of the season.  

First, we'll host an initial kick-off clinic where our coaches will lay out the training plan for you.  There, we'll cover the basics of form, nutrition, hydration, and more.  Then, for the 2020 Summer Season, we will join each other weekly by following each other’s progress and cheer each other on through our private dedicated Strava page and through Zoom meetings every other week. You even get a chance to have 2 one-on-one sessions with Coach Lisa via Zoom, FaceTime or Google Duo.  Additionally, each week you will receive coaching emails that will cover a variety of topics to further assist in your training and keep you motivated.  With all of this personal assistance, CRC’s Walk & Run 101 is not your typical “couch to 5K” program.

You can access our Frequently Asked Questions page here.
