About This Activity

Training for your first race by yourself can be daunting. Where do you even start? Sometimes we need some help along the way, and a built-in support group alongside us. Starting September 2nd Motion Works Physical Therapy will be hosting a 6 week training program for the upcoming St Joe’s 5k on October 11th in Menasha (a 5k is 3.1 miles). This class is specifically for beginners who want to know the basics of running and this is the only running class in the Fox Valley instructed by a licensed physical therapist running specialist.

Each week there will be a coached run/walk and a teaching session on the key info every beginner needs to know about running, including stretching, injury prevention, form, footwear and more. Classes at MotionWorks in Neenah will be held for six weeks every Tuesday at 6:00 pm starting September 2nd until race day.

The cost is $60 (this does not include the cost of race registration). This fee includes:

  • Free biomechanical evaluation with a licensed physical therapist
  • Coach-guided sessions
  • Access to the coach via email during the week for any training questions
  • MotionWorks T-shirt
  • Technical running socks
  • MotionWorks Water bottle, and more!
