Zilch to 5K

Running Program

2017 Classes Run April 6th – June 15th


Group running is one of the best ways to get started. Not only will you make some great friends, you’ll have the support of Eve (Stein) Graves, a certified coach with over 25 years of coaching experience in running, Nordic skiing, and tennis. In addition, you will have fellow beginning runners who will encourage and motivate you. We will offer 2 runs per week in the West Duluth area.

Participants are not expected to be at every run. However, to get the most out of the class, doing the suggested workout for the day would be beneficial. The Back-of-the-Pack coach will be at all of the runs to follow along with the class participants and no one will ever have to run alone. This class is intended for those who prefer to move slowly, we go at the pace of the person in the back.
