Training Programs for the In-Person Race (Sep. 12)

All registrants will be assigned automatically to a FREE online training program based on your Projected 10 mile or 5K time you provide on the entry form:

  • Kirt West Beginner Training Program Presented by ASICS (starts July 12)
  • RunCoach Intermediate and Advanced Program (accepted runners will hear from Runcoach about setting up your program after lottery registration ends in early July.)

Those not wishing to participate in a training program will have the opportunity to OPT-OUT on the entry form.

The Credit Union Cherry Blossom, in conjunction with ASICS and Garmin, will also offer two training programs for both Ten Mile Run and 5K Run-Walk participants at an additional fee. Use the links below to learn more about all four different training programs:
