If you thought you were someone that could not run a 5k race, this may be the opportunity you need. The annual Marblehead Bank 5K Daisy walk/run will take place on May 11. A 6 week training program will take place at Otterbein North Shore to prepare individuals for the run/walk.
The six week program will start on March 20 and run until April 24. The program is designed for those individuals that can master a 15 -20 mile training week or currently walk/run one mile per day. This is a self-paced program and is designed for new runners, as well as beginner runners. Participants are encouraged to find their own comfort level and work toward a goal of finishing the Daisy 5k.
The training program will be held each Wednesday evening starting at 5:30 p.m. and will end at 6:30 p.m. Participants should meet at Otterbein North Shore, 9400 North Shore Blvd., Lakeside-Marblehead. There is no cost for the program, but advanced registration is required. Spaces for the program are limited in order to give attention to participants.
Individuals interested in the training program should contact Sondra Marker at 419-798-8203 or 513-312-8853 before March 18, 2013.
