5K Training

the perfect group to start or continue your running journey!

turkey trot 5K groups - start october 13th!

Whether you are a walker looking to take your first running steps or an experienced 5Ker looking to improve your speed, there is a place in our training group for you! Each group targets a local 5K race but regardless of if you are racing at the end of the program, this group will help you establish a consistent running routine.

This 6-week 5K training program is offered at all Charm City Run locations. You will meet twice a week for supported group runs with your fellow runners and coach - once for a speed workout and once for a distance run in addition to following a weekly training plan. The small group atmosphere will also allow you to connect with other runners in the area.

No running experience necessary! Runners, walkers and run/walkers of all levels welcome!

Word on the Street

"When I turned 54, I thought, ‘now is the time to join a running program!’ I did not feel out of place in this group. I felt welcomed and encouraged. So I kept attending and laughing and training and, to my surprise, started to be able to run a short distance without stopping. When I started I literally could not run around a city block without stopping. With many of my friends from my running group, I ran my first 5K without walking at the Baltimore's Women's Classic a few months later. I was so amazed that I was able to accomplish this that I actually cried.

- Julie
