The NOTC presents a FREE 5K clinic for runners and walkers of all ages, abilities, and experience levels. The sessions will be conducted by NOTC board members, RRCA-certified coaches and runners and walkers from our community. The training program will run for six weeks, starting Saturday, October 30 and concluding the week of the NOTC Ole Man River 10K and 5K on December 11, 2021, preparing all participants to participate in the 5K race.
The goal of this clinic is to provide a free service to the community during what has been an extremely difficult period with so many affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and now storm recovery after the devastation of Hurricane Ida. This program is designed to keep people active and engaged in events that promote fitness and social enjoyment.
The first session will be held Saturday, October 30, 2021 at the Bucktown Marina in Metairie, LA, just off of Metairie Hammond Highway. Attendance will be limited and current COVID-19 related precautions will be followed. Pre-registration is required.
Group trainings will be held twice per week on Tuesday and Saturday. We will meet Tuesday evenings at 6:00 PM at the practice track in City Park behind Tad Gormley Stadium. Saturday morning sessions will be at Bucktown Marina at 8AM. Start times may vary slightly to allow for all participants to finish simultaneous.
Training groups will be determined by approximate finish times/pace. A training plan will be provided to all participants which will require other trainings separate from the two weekly group trainings.
The NOTC Fall Running and Walking Clinic is open to all runners and walkers, NOTC members and nonmembers alike.
