Step into Running is an 11-week group training program for women and girls sponsored by the Omaha Running Club. The program targets beginners or those looking for group support. Group support and encouragement during the training help participants increase their fitness levels and prepare for the Go Girl Run 5K on Labor Day.
VIRTUAL ORIENTATION: Orientation will be held via a Zoom meeting on Tuesday, June 7th at 6:00pm. You will receive an email with a link to join the orientation meeting once registered.
Details: An overview of the program will be provided, payment will be collected (you can pay by cash, check or credit card), followed by a 1 mile time trial on the Keystone Trail. The time trial will be used to determine your pace group.
Please note that this year's program will be capped at 30 participants.
Training sessions last 45-60 minutes. They include a warm up walk, 30 minutes of training, cool down walk and stretching. There will be two-three virtual training sessions that feature guest speakers who will share fitness and running tips virtually via Zoom. Topics will be shared with participants the week before.
