If you still have questions please check out our FAQ below or join us at RUNdetroit at 5:45pm on March 27th for an info session/Q&A.
Do I have to attend every workout?
Attendance at each workout is recommended but not required. If you miss a workout occasionally or if you're just not available on, say, Wednesdays, its okay. Just be sure to do the workout on your own. You will get out what you put in.
How long are the workouts?
It varies depending on the workout and your pace. Plan for 35-75 minutes.
Do you run in the rain?
Workouts are held RAIN or SHINE. The only time we'll cancel is if there is severe/dangerous weather like tornado warnings or lightning.
What if I am too slow?
You're not! This program is specifically for Beginners. If you are not currently active and would like to run a 5K, this program is designed for YOU!
Why are you charging for this program now? When is the free program?
Due to overwhelming interest in the program our operational costs have increased. We've hired more coaches and added some additional benefits that were not included in prior versions of the program (t-shirts, water bottles etc.)
I can already do a 5K. What if I want to run farther?
We'll be offering a continuation of our 3.101 training to take Beginners that are experienced at a 5K to a 10K later in the summer and the Free Press Half Marathon this Fall. You are not required to participate in this session of 3.101 in order to join our 10K or Half Marathon programs. Registration for the sessions can be found under the Training Plans link on this website.
