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

Run with us all year long!
We have informal walking and running groups that continue meeting during the "off" season:
Tuesday evenings - Irmo Town Park @ 6:00 p.m.
Thursday evenings - Columbia Riverfront Park @ 6:00 p.m.
Saturday mornings - Lake Murray Dam (Irmo side) @ 7:00 a.m.
There is no charge for joining these groups. It's just an informal gathering of walking/running friends.
All paces are welcome. For more information, contact Alan Humphries at firstname.lastname@example.org.
