Run NNK to offer Monument Avenue 10K training program

The Run NNK Running Club will conduct an eight-week training program for the 2017 Monument Ave 10K, which will be held April 1 in Richmond.

The training program is open to runners and walkers at all levels, and will be tailored to match each participant’s goals and fitness level, reported Run NNK board member Denise Schindler.

“Many runners and walkers in this area prepare for the Monument Ave. 10K annually. This program is a great opportunity to make new training friends, stay motivated, and get in shape for this very popular race,” said Schindler. “We invite everyone to join with us, and train together for a great race.”

Registration for the training program is free for club members and $20 for others, which includes a one-year membership in Run NNK.

The training teams will meet on Saturdays for long runs and some Wednesday evenings for workouts on the track starting at 8:30 a.m. February 4 at the Northumberland Family YMCA in Heathsville. A registration form is available at
