Red Coyote is excited to announce the Fall 2022 Newbie 5K Program starting Monday, August 1st and leading up to the Runtoberfest 5k on Sunday, October 2nd. Red Coyote Training Programs are FREE to people of all abilities (run or walk) to help get the community moving, stay motivated and achieve their personal goals. Whether you're a runner/walker attempting your first 5K or you're shooting for a new PR, there's a place for you in our Pack. In the Red Coyote program, we think sharing the training journey with others working to achieve a common goal is the best part and makes every run more fun!
Have you always wanted to be a runner but not sure how or where to start? Red Coyote has trained over 3,000 Newbies to run their first 5K! We have the experience and the knowledge to help you reach your goals. All participants will receive the official handbook and schedule through email and then ALL other communication will go through a private Facebook group that Red Coyote has created. You'll be sent the link to join that Facebook group and all the important details in the official welcome email which will go out about a week before the program begins. If you have friends you would like to invite, please send them the registration link and not the link to the Facebook page. Although this is a free program, you must be officially registered to be granted access to the Facebook page. This 9 week support based program is designed for participants who have never run or haven't run for awhile that want a structured program that will assist them in increasing their mileage slowly, strategically and safely to the 5k distance!
When you register, you'll have the option to purchase a Training Program shirt for $15.00. These shirts will be available to pick up about halfway through the program and we'll notify you when they are printed and ready. Red Coyote will only order the amount pre-purchased so if you'd like one, order now, they won't be for sale at a later date. We may have some people who participate from out of town virtually. If you'd like your shirt mailed to you, we're happy to do so for a $10.00 shipping fee. Any shirts that haven't been picked up 14 days after the program concludes will be donated to one of our charity partners.
There are 3 coached runs each week, Monday and Wednesday evenings as well as Saturday mornings. The program kick off run is Monday, August 1st at 6:00pm at the Red Coyote OKC store. All Monday night runs will be at Red Coyote in OKC at 6:00pm, all Wednesday night runs will be at Red Coyote in Edmond at 6:00pm and all Saturday morning runs will begin at 8:00am at the Red Coyote OKC location! We'll start with easy walk/run intervals and work our way to 3.1 miles. The target race for this program is the Runtoberfest 5K in OKC on October 2nd in OKC but you can use this to train for any race of your choice or just to run for fun!
If you have questions, there are 2 informational meetings coming up or you can send email to email@example.com anytime.
Tuesday, July 12th 7:00pm (In-Person Red Coyote OKC location)
Thursday, July 28th 7:00pm (In-Person Red Coyote Edmond location and Zoom Option)
Hope to see you all soon Training With the Pack!
