​Step into Running is a 12-week group training program for women and girls sponsored by the Omaha Running Club. The program targets beginners, those looking for group support or those wanting to get back into running after time away. Group support and encouragement during the training help participants increase their fitness levels and specifically prepare for the Go Girl Run 5K on Labor Day.

Date/Time:  June, 2024, 6pm
Location: Parking Lot of Peak Performance at 519 N 78th St, Omaha

Training sessions will be held every Tuesday from June – August and will last 45-60 minutes.  They include a warm up walk, 30 minutes of training, cool down walk and stretching.  There will be 1-2 sessions that feature guest speakers who will share fitness and running tips before our group run.
