Nervous about running your first 5K? We’re giving the BGR! Nation an opportunity to get off the couch and on the pavement together!! Black Girls RUN! is hosting its first ever virtual WALKB4URUN! 5K! Our WALKB4URUN! is a training program developed by Black Girls RUN! to take you from walking to running your first 5K. Similar, to the Couch to 5K program, this training program gradual progresses and is perfect for people who have never run a 5K before. You can complete on your own, with a local BGR! group, on the treadmill, with friends, just as long as you get it done! Everyone is welcome to participate, we just want to see you up and moving!
How Does It Work?
1) Register online for WalkB4URUN! Virtual 5K (Ask your friends and family to register too!)
2) Train! Do not forget to download the Black Girls RUN! WalkB4URUN! 5K Training Plan. You can download it here.
