Christmas Run Training Plans & Runs
Whether this is your first running event or you’re a veteran, it’s important to be ready. Remember to train smart and not overdo. Below are training plans and group training runs to help you get to the Christmas Run finish line.
Start slowly. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to get used to exercising and running regularly. Be careful not to overdo, especially in the first few weeks. The risk of injury is too high to push yourself too fast. Rest days are an integral part of the schedule. Do not overlook them.
