COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Runners and walkers are invited to be part of the next “Run for God” training program, which starts Sunday, February 16.
If you’ve ever wanted to become a runner or need a good excuse to take up fitness walking, now’s your chance.
Riverland Hills is offering a 12-week program that combines a weekly Bible study with group training sessions to prepare you to run a 5K (3.1 mile) or a 10K (6.2 mile) road race. Walkers will train to walk a 5K event. The program runs February 16 through May 9.
The 30-minute Bible study meets at Riverland Hills Baptist Church in Irmo on Sundays at 6 p.m., followed by a group workout. The 30-minute running/fitness instruction classes meet Tuesdays at 6 p.m., followed by a group workout. The group meets on Thursdays at 6 p.m. for an additional group workout.
The 5K and 10K programs are targeted to beginners. Absolutely no experience is required. Adults and children seventh-grade and above are invited to participate. Youth must attend with a participating adult.
The $50 program fee includes two race shirts and an entry fee for the Get in the Pink Run, a local 5K/10K on May 9. “Run for God” alumni can register for the program at a discounted rate of $30 with the option to purchase a new “Run for God” shirt.
The deadline to register for the program is February 9. The program runs February 16 through May 9 and meets three times a week for a Bible study and group training sessions.
