Fort4Fitness and Bird are excited to offer a coached 10k training program this year, brought to you by PNC Bank!

Join the #RunWithPNC team and train for your best race with the support of a running coach and motivation from your teammates. We'll be building endurance and speed together, meeting for online workshops, and high fiving each other all summer long.

The team kicks off on August 8th; get your spot now and start training with us!

The Fort4Fitness 10K Team Presented by PNC includes:

  • An 8 week training program of 4-5 workouts a week, including 3-4 runs and one cross training day, that will prepare you to run up to six miles.

  • One on one text support from your certified running coach Raquel Neto for questions, advice, and accountability.

  • A group chat with your coach and other participants to discuss training and cheer each other on!

  • Team kickoff and pre-race calls with Coach Raquel, as well as monthly workshops and coach office hours to ask questions.

  • The Bird app to follow the training plan, track your progress, and communicate with your coach and team.

Who is this plan for?

Beginner and intermediate runners who are looking to increase mileage safely and incorporate light and moderate speed workouts. This plan starts at 9 miles a week with a long run of 3 miles, and builds to 20 miles a week and a long run of 6 miles. You should be comfortable running or run/walking 3 miles (even if it's slow!) to join.

The accountability aspect of the app, along with the connection to a live and awesome coach, has helped me stay on track with my training during COVID group restrictions.
I am currently using Bird Coach with Team Dirt and Vert and love it! Each day I have an assigned workout (run or cross training), and one day of rest. The accountability aspect of the app, along with the connection to a live and awesome coach, has helped me stay on track with my training during COVID group restrictions. I also appreciate how the developers listen to the users and quickly make improvements to the app, and the new community feature is cool! Highly recommend! - Molly from California

The regular text check-ins and weekly virtual happy hours were the accountability that I was looking for and demonstrated that the coaches really cared about helping you get to where you wanted to be in the program.
Years ago, I used to participate (run/walk) in 5ks to half marathons, but it’s been at least 5 years since my last one. I joined the Bird Running Group to help motivate me and to have some accountability to get moving again. The January run club was the perfect fit! All the coaches were extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful! The guidance and weekly run plans were clear and provided you with specific instructions for beginners, intermediates, and experts. I was impressed and excited at how far I’d come from the beginning to the end of the program! The regular text check-ins and weekly virtual happy hours were the accountability that I was looking for and demonstrated that the coaches really cared about helping you get to where you wanted to be in the program. I can’t wait to sign up for more of the Bird programs!

”I absolutely LOVE this program and am so thankful you launched it as I was planning to train for my second marathon."
I absolutely LOVE this program and am so thankful you launched it as I was planning to train for my second marathon. The Bird app is super easy to use, and i love that I get a text reminder to log if I forget - and that it does it for me based on my response! I also really appreciate that you incorporate strength into the shorter run days. I have been following RunnersWorld’s training plan, but always felt confused on when I could add strength and how much. This plan totally fits my life!

If it weren’t for the app, I’m not sure I would’ve stuck to my plan.
I was most impressed with how the information was delivered privately on the app every Sunday and it was clear and concise with access to demo videos, ways to contact and have time with my coaches, and gave me variety each week.
