Run for God
Spring 2015
Runners and Walkers Welcome—Half Marathon Program Offered

Check back for 2015 details!

If you’ve always wanted to become a runner or need a good excuse to take up fitness walking, now’s your chance! Riverland Hills is offering a 12-week program that combines a weekly Bible study with group training sessions to prepare you to run a 5k (3.1 mile), an 8k (5 mile), or a half marathon (13.1) road race. Walkers will train to walk a 5k event.

The 30-minute Bible study meets at RHBC on Sundays at 6 p.m., followed by a group run. 30-minute running/fitness instruction classes meet Tuesdays at 6 p.m., followed by a group run. The group meets on Thursdays at 6 p.m. for an additional group run.

The 5k and 8k program is targeted to beginners—absolutely no experience is required. Adults and children 7th grade and above are invited to participate. (Youth must attend with a participating adult.)

5k and 8k alumni can register for the program at a discounted rate of $35, with the option to purchase a new Run for God shirt.

Half marathon participants should be able to complete a distance of seven to eight miles before beginning the program.

Registration Information
  • Online Registration COMING SOON!
  • Eligibility: Adults and youth 7th grade and older (Youth must attend with an adult who is participating).
