If you are looking to run or walk the Crim for the first time this August and just want to finish, or you are a more experienced racer and are looking to improve your time this year, the CrimFit Adult Training Program is a great way to accomplish either goal.
The program is revamped this year, with runners and walkers able to select the 10 mile, 8K, or 5K distance they would like to train for, with the runners also able to choose if they just want to finish the race or aim for a more specific time goal. The training groups meet at locations across Genesee County every Tuesday morning or evening for 15 weeks beginning on May 15 and will guide participants through a training program to accomplish their goals come August 25.
Participants in the training program also receive an entry into the Crim Festival of Races, along with two race vouchers to use at participating races leading up to the Crim. For instance, the upcoming Burton Memorial Day Race in May is a Crim voucher race where you can enter at no additional cost. Participants also receive many other cool benefits, including a discount at Complete Runner, good on any shoes and apparel to help you reach your goals!
Curtis is a thirty plus year Crim runner and multiple-time group leader for the Crim Training Program. He is excited to be co-leading a group this year where he will assist runners who are aspiring to finish the Crim 10 mile run in around a 10 minute per mile pace.
Time is running out fast to sign up for the training program as registration closes on April 16. For more information, please inquire at Complete Runner or find more details at www.crim.org.
