Run for God
Runners and Walkers Welcome—Half Marathon Program Offered
The program runs August 24 through November 22.
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.
Half marathon participants will run the Governor’s Cup Half Marathon on November 8 and should be able to complete a distance of seven to eight miles before beginning the program. A training schedule that begins in August will be provided for half marathoners who want to get a head start.
The registration fee for half marathoners is $65, which includes entry into the Governor’s Cup event.
