Can I run with the group even if I can’t/don’t want to participate in a race?

Yes. Many of the folks who run with us are are not fueled by the need to race. They are simply looking for the motivation for their running, and enjoy having great coaches and fun people. Plus, we have found that not everyone wants to run a particular race and doesn’t want to be locked in. The race calendar is full of choices. That said, the 5k group does prepare for a specific race (and the race entry is included in the group fee). We have found that the beginning runners want to complete the race and its always more special to do it as a group. It’s one of the very best moments in our coaching lives, period!
