FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
1. Can I bring my dog, friend, family member or child to training?
We love fur babies, your friends and family members too! However, we’d like to respect the
safety and well-being of your peers; as well as, provide undivided attention to registered
participants, and ask you to refrain from bringing them. Make it a buddy system and have your
friends/family register with you.
2. How long is training?
Great question! Training will generally last no more than one hour. We may have additional
meetings during the week for a seminar, and/or incorporate these into the days we meet for
training. This may extend our meeting time over an hour. Participants will be provided with a
schedule of the seminars.
3. I can’t make all the trainings. Should I still sign up?
Yes! This program is all encompassing. Your weekly emails and training schedules are provided
to keep you motivated and on task. Furthermore, a group forum will be available for
participants to link up to train together. Lastly, you’ll have the group support, companionship
and team camaraderie on race day.
4. I missed the registration deadline; can I still register?
Yes! However, this program is designed to gradually and safely build up endurance and fitness;
therefore, we will accept registrations no more than one week after the start date.
5. Do you run in the rain or snow?
Certainly! Being prepared to run in all types of weather is an integral part of training; that is
unless, safety becomes an issue. We will not run in thunder, lightning or extreme temperatures,
hot or cold.
6. What if I cannot run the whole thing?
You don’t have to go fast, you just have to go. Our goal is to get you from the starting line to the
finish line. It’s your race, your pace. Depending on your goal, walking breaks can be
incorporated. We strongly encourage you to stay consistent with training. Consistency is key to
7. I listen to music while I exercise. Can I wear my headphones during training?
One of the many benefits of group training is meeting others alike and making new friends.
Leave the headphones at home, meet new people, and also stay safe. With headphones on, it’s
difficult to hear directions or other sounds.
8. Is there an age limit?
Registration is open to participants ages 18 and up.
9. How do I register for the program?
Simple! You can register online, download a registration and mail it in, or stop in any one of our
convenient locations to pick up a registration form.

10. What do I need to participate in the program?
A “can do” attitude! Because we know you can do it too. Outside of a positive attitude, upon
registering, you will receive a list of items needed and recommended for participation.
11. Do I need to sign up for the target race?
There is nothing more exciting than “graduating” class with your peers and crossing the finish
line on race day, not to mention the race is for a great cause. While we highly encourage you to
register for the target race, it is not required. For more information or to register for our target
