This fun and progressive 8-week beginner running program sponsored by the North Jersey Masters running club has been designed to make sure that your first step is the right step towards discovering the joy and fitness benefits of running and completing a 5K race. All abilities are welcomed whether you are new to running, a casual runner looking to advance to the next level, or returning to running after a break. Your commitment to achieving your personal goals along with our training techniques, support and expert speakers will prepare you to cross the finish line.
We hold two formal beginner-running programs throughout the year that culminate with a 5K race. Each consists of eight (8) weeks of instruction with an experienced, certified running coach who will guide you on your journey along with club member volunteers and former program graduates. Over the course of the program you will be equipped with the knowledge, encouragement and inspiration you need to be successful.
