The Big Run 5k Finish includes four groups: walking, advanced walking, interval running, and running. All groups will start at 1 mile and work up to a 5K (3.1 miles). Walkers walk the entire distance, interval running includes run/walk intervals starting at running for 30 seconds and walking for 2 minutes and finishing the program at running for 2 minutes and walking for 1 minute; and the running group runs with no breaks. The Big Run 5k: Finish is all about the distance and having fun, so we don't have specific paces we're hitting!
Here's the great thing: if you start with one group and decide you want more of a challenge, or less, you can change groups! Make sure to talk with Coach Tim and your mentors for advice! Walkers can move to intervals, runners can move to intervals, intervals can move to walking, etc.
