About This Activity

The Reston Runners have put together a 10 week training program commencing on Monday July 21, 2014. The training program is appropriate for runners doing the "Perfect 10" hosted by Potomac River Running on Sept 28, 2014 or another fall 10K or 10 Mile race.

If you are looking for a fun, supportive, and informative program for men and
women and you have the desire and experience to move up from the 5K distance,
this Program can help you achieve your goals.

Designed and managed by certified coaches, the Program will take the
base you already have and build on it to give you the endurance, speed, and
confidence to finish a successful 10K

We expect athletes to have a minimum of 8 to 12 weeks of recent running or run/walk experience with the capability of currently completing a 5K race.  Bring your experience, enthusiasm, a water bottle, and a towel and we'll bring a proven Program, lots of individual coaching support, and information on a variety of topics such as pacing, nutrition, cross training, and mental preparation.  Depending on your level of fitness and your goals, you can expect to run at least 3 - 4 times a week for the Basic Program and up to 6 times a week for the Advanced Program.  Run/walkers should count on getting out 3 – 4 times also.

Event schedule and times

Our weekly meetings will be on Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. at Lake Fairfax Park.  The Reston Runners also support a Thursday evening run from the Potomac River Running store in Reston starting at 6:30 p.m.  Saturday morning runs at 8 a.m. are from various locations around Reston and feature marked courses so no one gets off track.
