About This Activity

Learn to run in a fun, relaxed atmosphere with coach Tory. Tory has been coaching people in the Marysville area for eight years, and has been coaching for ten. She has coached hundreds of people to their first 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon, or 50k and hasn't lost anyone yet!

We will start out with just a simple 60 second run with 90 seconds of walking to break it up and move up from there! Every week you will learn something new about your new (or returning) relationship with running! You will learn about:

  • Shoes and gear
  • Hydration
  • Safety
  • Avoiding injury
  • Taking care of yourself
  • Proper form
  • Having fun!

One thing that no other program like this offers is free cross training classes! Tory believes wholeheartedly in avoiding injury through cross training. She has developed a cross training Powerrr Hour for Runners and offers it free to current students on Monday and Wednesday evenings  at 5:30. You don't have to be a runner to get a lot out of the class, but the class will make you a stronger and better runner!

Event details and schedule

Class runs for eight weeks and will culminate in us running either the Ugly Sweater Run and/or the Jingle Bell Run (registration not included in the price of the class). 

Come ready to run the first day of class.

We will meet at the end of the field closest to Totem Middle School near the track, but we will not be running on the track (how boring).
