No Boundaries is a beginner 5K (3.1 miles) training program designed for people who are currently inactive or new to running and walking. While No Boundaries focuses on beginners, all levels of walkers and runners are welcome. The program is structured to help you cross the finish line in just 10 weeks! Along the way we’ll provide you with motivation to keep you moving, guidance and advice, weekly group training runs or walks, and educational clinics on topics such as proper nutrition, choosing the right gear, and avoiding injury. Plus, you’ll have the camaraderie of others just like you!
Q: What is the cost of the registration?
A: The cost of the entire training program is $75.00. The registration includes a No Boundaries (Nobo) technical shirt as well as RRCA insurance, prizes, giveaways, coupons, incentives, expert coaching and mentor assistance.
Q: I am just a walker. Is this still the right program for me?
A: Absolutely. We fully encourage walkers in each session of Nobo so you can still work towards your goals with others.
Q: If I am already running this distance but I am looking for a group to train with is this program right for me?
A: Yes, if you want even more of a challenge we'll fine tune the 5K distance and include education on more advanced training techniques. Rather than building endurance you will work on strength and stamina.
Q: If I miss workouts, or I have to consistently miss one of the days of our weekly meetings does that mean I cannot be involved in the program?
A: Of course you can still be involved! We would love to have every trainee at every run, but understand that life and obligations may get in the way. Just make sure that you are completing your training runs independently so you don’t fall behind on your progress! Also, let your coach and mentors know when you expect to miss so we don’t worry about you!
Q: How do I register?
A: Registration open and can be found HERE.
Q: What if I have to miss the informational meeting?
A: No big deal! Just come to the first workout and we can get you up to speed then. The informational meeting is intended for people who still need to know more before they commit to registering. If you already know you want to get involved, there is no need for you to come to that meeting.
Q: Can I come to the first workout before deciding to register?
A: If we still have open spots then of course! We are confident after you see what the programs are all about that you will want to get involved.
Q: What does the training schedule look like?
A: We will be starting at small mileages and building over the course of the program. It will never change suddenly or dramatically and you will always be well prepared for any increase distance.
Q: Where do we meet?
A: We'll meet at Fleet Feet on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:00pm. Any changes will be communicated well in advance.
