Running School


The AARC Running School is designed for individuals who want to get into running or back into running and need a little extra guidance. No experience is required to join the program and all abilities are welcome. The program’s goal is to help walkers and runners complete a 5k, 10k, or just enjoy being active with friends.

PACE GROUPS - We know that not everyone coming into the program will be at the same level. We will split the program up into 3 groups. Each group will have a coach to help them complete the workout.

  • Beginners: This group is for people who are not working out at all and looking to start a healthy lifestyle.
  • Novice: This group is for people who have been doing some kind of fitness activity other than running a few times a week.
  • Experienced: This group is for people that have done some running in the past but maybe are looking to get back into running after a long time off.
