Fort4Fitness and Bird are excited to offer a coached 4 mile training program this year, brought to you by PNC Bank! Train for your best race on October 1st with your own personal running coach and teammates to keep you motivated.
Maybe you're a brand new runner, or maybe you're getting back into it after some time away. No worries, there are no prerequisites for this class - all runners and runners-to-be are welcome. Over six weeks, Coach Raquel will lead you through walk/run workouts that build up to running 4 miles.
Every running workout has two options for you to choose from:
Walk to run: We will start with short intervals of one minute running and two minutes walking for a total of one mile. If you can run for one minute (even slowly!) right now, this plan is for you.
(Mostly) running: We start with continuous intervals of 4 minutes running and one minute walking, for a total of one mile. And if you can already run continuously, well done you!
The team kicks off on August 22nd, get your spot now!
A 6 week training program of 4-5 run/walk workouts a week with beginner and intermediate options.
One on one text support from your certified running coach Raquel Neto for questions, advice, and accountability.
Team kickoff and pre-race calls with Coach Raquel, as well as monthly workshops on everything from hydration to mental prep for race day.

Who is this plan for?
Brand new or beginner runners looking for guidance and support while you build a running habit. This plan is appropriate for anyone who is comfortable walking a mile and running one minute. All workouts will be at your own pace and can be modified.
