Walk2Run Main Banner

This is a FREE supervised 10 week program of progressively increased running and decreased walking activity. Run/Walk from our store on the Great Western Trail near the store in Carol Stream. The program culminates in a 30 minute continuous run and an optional 5K (3.1 miles) race as a graduation event. The program also includes: Mini Clinics on Nutrition, Stretching, Running Form, and Injury Prevention. Due to restrictions related to COVID-19 we will not be providing water for these sessions, please bring your own water.

All ages and paces welcome!

If running is not for you, join us for our Walk N Talk option during our Walk2Run Program.

Walk 2 Run Session 1 dates:

  • Mondays 6:30pm  July 13th – Sept 7th
  • Saturdays 8:30am July 11th – Sept 5th
  • We will do a self timed 5K after the 10 week session on the Great Western Trail behind the store.

Walk N Talk Option

Want to join us for 30 minutes of cardio every Saturday morning but should not or do not want to run? Our Walk N Talk option gives you the option to walk at an increased speed instead of running during the run segments of the program. It’s a great way to get moving!
