 START 6.2

Welcome to our START 6.2 training program!
“Start Training And Racing Today

Big River Running Company is proud to host a first class 10K training program for beginning to novice runners each fall. This program is geared for people who have previously run a 5K and would like to try a new distance! It is a great option for runners who have graduated from Big River’s START 5K program. This program is NOT for you if you are a veteran runner who simply wants to get faster at the 10K distance. If that description fits you, we recommend our Personal Coaching service.

Our START 6.2 program will provide you with experienced coaches and teammates who share similar goals and can turn the tough grind of training into a fun and social experience. The program starts with a walk/run progression and we gradually work our way, throughout the 10 START Promo weeks, to the goal of continuously running a 10K. Along the way important topics to help you on the path to success are discussed, coaches are there to motivate and keep you on track, and you’ll meet a great group of peers with whom to share the journey. There is no pressure here, just positive support to help you achieve your goals!
