San Diego Leprechaun Run 5K


We use a schedule that is designed to increase evenly and progressively from start to finish. We break it up into multiple training phases for a typical training program, each with very specific training focuses:

Weeks 1-2: Introduction - in these weeks we introduce you to base pace, various workout types, and common themes in running
Weeks 3-4: Build & Strength - these weeks we will begin to increase weekly mileage, add strength and flexibility training, and focus on consistency 
Weeks 5-7: Sharpen & Lengthen - in this phase, we get confident with our work and perfect what we've done previously
Week 8, Race Week: Recover & Race Prep - the last few weeks of training are dedicated to rest, race planning and staying loose

  • Our programs are progressive in nature, with each week building upon the last - slow, steady and consistent! Weekday meetups consist of different types of workouts (intervals, hills, fartlek, tempo, plyometrics, and good form running)

Exclusive Discounts and Prizes

Throughout the program you'll have access to in-store discounts on all the essentials you'll need to maximize your training.  You'll also earn an exclusive training program technical t-shirt, and we'll have some other special prizes and giveaways throughout the season too!
