A New Program for Westminster!

Running can be a selfish sport, and the passion that comes from training, races, and achieving personal records can sometimes take precedence over what’s truly important: your family, friends, and faith. This is what led Run for God Founder Mitchell Hollis to use his passion for the glory of God. He discovered that there were a lot of people who were interested in running but didn’t know how to get started, so he created the Run for God 5K Challenge.

Running can be a daunting thought and many believe they can’t run a 5K, but this program is built to help anyone complete a 3.1 mile race. Run for God’s 5K challenge is a 12-week Bible study that guides running instructors and allows them to combine faith and endurance training in a way that helps take people, even those who have never run, through their first 5K.

Sue will be partnering with Lindsey Coyner and both are very excited about leading this 5K Challenge. It is important to remember, these classes are open to anyone who wants to complete a 5K, even if you’ve never run in your life! Experienced runners are also welcome.

Run for God’s 5K Challenge isn’t about runners getting together to train. This class welcomes all but is focused on teaching the fundamentals that will help new runners achieve their goal of running a 5K. The class will teach:

  • Running fundamentals and techniques
    • including proper shoes and interval training
  • Weekly Bible study topics

This class will be training to participate in the Bold Rock 5k at Carter Mountain on May 25, 2019. This event is walker and dog-friendly! The class schedule will be 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm each Thursday beginning March 7th. Child care will be provided.

The only fees associated with this class will be the cost of the book and registration for the race as follows:

  • RFG Study book: $21.99 (will be 15% less if we get 12 or more people participating). Sue will place a group order for the books.
  • 5k Registration: $30

Optional: Run For God shirt (a variety of styles and costs)
