Free Brooksie Way Training Program
For those who want to participate in the 5K but are not sure about
running or walking 3.1 miles, Campus Recreation is providing a free
training program to help get in shape. It is available to the first 30
who sign up (for the training program not the Brooksie)! Walking,
run/walking, or just running groups are being formed for lunch time
(12:10 p.m.) and/or after work (5:15 p.m.). Each session will have a
designated leader and groups will run or walk (depending on what you
sign up for) for up to 45 minutes. Groups will meet at the Rec Center
and activity will be outside unless it's raining or too hot.
Individuals who participate in the run/walk or just run groups will be
provided a running schedule to use outside the group meeting times.
Walkers will have a special walking plan just for them!
