Train for the Lion Chase 5K in 4 Weeks

August 28, 2015 by Vanessa Eagerton

We are officially four weeks away from our annual Lion Chase 5K charity race! (See last year's blog post on why the Lion Chase is one of the best 5Ks around.)

Are you signed up and realizing that you didn’t train for it? Don’t worry - we found this online four-week 5K training outline, where you can even sign up for coinciding weekly emails. The training program is designed for beginners who can already run a half-mile, and is a run/walk-to-continuous running program where you make slight running increases each session.

We created this chart to help you keep track of what walk/run combinations you should do each day, and even made it Instagram-ready if you want to share it with your friends or encourage them to join you. And, if either you or your friends forgot to sign up for the 4th Annual Lion Chase 5K, it’s not too late! You can sign up here and know that you're supporting a good cause - helping us build homes for impoverished families in Mexico.

See you at the finish line!
