Join us for Pace in Parks— a 13-week "Couch to 10K" training program, beginning in early April. The club is free and open to the public, with the only requirement of a suggested ability to walk for 60 minutes, non-stop. The training program will lead beginner runners to complete the Bluegrass 10,000, a 6.2-mile foot or wheelchair race on Monday, July 4th. Each week, participants will do an exercise and be given two others to complete by the following week. Participants are not required to attend every week and can join mid-program. Experienced and occasional runners are also welcome to join.
The Pace in Parks run club will meet every Saturday morning at a new park to run/walk the encouraged distance according to a 13-week training program. A Lexington Parks and Recreation staff member will be present to take roll, answer questions and be your guide for the workout. Meet fellow runners in the area to help build a community around our almost 46-year-old race. Stay tuned for exciting announcements, special guests and giveaways!
In case of rain, the run club will meet at 9 a.m. Sunday the next day. Join our Facebook group to interact with other runners and stay up-to-date.
