The Reston Runner's 10 Weeks to 10K Program returns this year starting Monday, July 22 ,2019 and culminates with the PRR Perfect 10K/10 Miler on Sunday, September 29, 2019.
The program is open to runners, run/walkers, and walkers who want to train and do a 10K race or a 10 Mile race. Both new and experienced people are welcomed. Participants should be able to run, run/walk, or walk at least 3 miles prior to the beginning of the program. The goal is to complete or improve upon a 10K or 10 Miler race.
Each Monday evening during the program starting at 6:30 PM, the participants meet with the coaches for a brief talk (5 minutes or less) and a run or run/walk. We typically meet at either the Lake Newport tennis courts or at the Lake Fairfax Park. After registration, but before the program starts, participants are given a workout schedule which includes where the Monday meetings are going to be held. The schedule also includes the workout that each participant is expected to do for each day of the program. Participants are also encouraged to join in the Reston Runner runs on Saturday and Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Special thanks to Chris Dettmar who has coached the program for the past 5 years! Meet your new co-leads, John Koss and Julia Low.
