The Reston Runner's 10 Weeks to 10K Program returns this year starting Saturday September 24 - November 26, 2022 at 8 am. The program culminates with a 10k in early December. The 10k will be the Ringing in Hope 10k on December 3, 2022 in Ashburn. The race fees are additional to the program fees.
The program is open to walkers, runners, run/walkers, who want to train and do a 10K race. Both new and experienced people are welcomed. Participants should be able to walk, run, run/walk, at least 3 miles prior to the beginning of the program. The goal is to complete or improve upon a 10K race.
Each Saturday morning at 8:00 am, the participants meet with the coaches for a brief talk (5 minutes or less) and a walk, run or run/walk. We’ll meet at Reston Runners weekly Saturday location. The location typically is at a local school, pool or park in Reston.
After registration, but before the program starts, participants are given a workout schedule which includes where the Saturday meetings are going to be held. The schedule also includes the workout that each participant is expected to do for each day of the program. Participants are also encouraged to join in the Reston Runner runs on Sunday mornings too for additional opportunities to run with a group.
The program fee is $45 and includes the weekly runs, the workout schedule, a t-shirt, ad hoc coaching. No refunds will be given.
Online registration ise open through October 1, 2022.
