When is Orientation?

Orientation will take place on Sunday, March 25th at 7:15pm at Fleet Feet Roanoke, located at 4347 Franklin Rd, Roanoke VA 24018. Come out to learn more about the program, meet the mentors and the coach, hear testimonials from past participants, and get all of your questions answered!

Can you tell me more about the No Boundaries 5K Training pace groups?

All groups will start at 1 mile and work up to a 5K (3.1 miles). No Boundaries includes three pace groups:

  • Walking – Walkers will walk the entire training.
  • Interval Running (Run/Walk) – Interval Running includes run/walk intervals starting at running for 30 seconds and walking for 2 minutes, and finishing up training at running for 2 minutes and walking for 1 minute
  • Running – Running the whole time with no breaks. No Boundaries 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 Leslie and your mentors for advice! Walkers can move to intervals, runners can move to intervals, intervals can move to walking, etc.

Any rules?

Your safety is our number one priority. With your safety in mind, we have created the below rules and requirements by which all Fleet Feet Running Club participants and mentors must abide.

  • All No Boundaries participants must have identification with emergency contact information on them at all workouts.
  • Earphones are NOT allowed at workouts.
  • Participants must have reflective gear and lights when warranted (most of the Winter training season!)
  • Participants must have a hydration system with them during all workouts. 
  • Participants must stay with a Fleet Feet Training Mentor at all times. 
  • No strollers at workouts and no children under the age of 18.
  • No animals at workouts. 

Do we do any races?

The goal race for No Boundaries is The Big Run Roanoke on Wednesday, June 5, 2019. The registration fee for The Big Run is NOT included in the No Boundaries registration cost.

What does the cost of No Boundaries 5K Training go towards?

50% of the cost will go to a local non-profit. The remainder of the registration fees goes towards coaching staff, equipment, insurance, and part of the registration goes back to the City of Roanoke to help maintain the Greenways and facilities that we use.
