Training for the Bellin Run Starts Now

March 13, 2013

Free Preparation Classes Begin Wednesday, March 20

The Bellin Run has special training programs to help runners and walkers get off the couch and out onto the streets. And the best part about the programs is that they’re free.

Starting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 20, Bellin Run hopefuls can join other runners and walkers for a free weekly training class at Bellin Health’s Green Bay Health & Athletic Performance Center, 1630 Commanche Ave., Green Bay (west reception area). The 12-week group training classes are designed for participants of all performance levels.

Each week the class will undergo a 5-10 minute informational session and a warm-up, followed by a run or walk. There is no commitment to attend. You can join as many or as few training runs/walks as you like.

Routes will start at one mile, eventually building to six miles in time for the 8 a.m. Saturday, June 8 Bellin Run.

Whether you’re considering conquering the Bellin Run for the first time or you’re a seasoned veteran of the 6.2-mile course, these training sessions can help you sharpen your training edge each week through race day.

Free Training Class for Walkers

If you are interested in a class specifically tailored to walkers, then take advantage of a new training class developed to help you effectively walk the Bellin Run course.

This free 12-week training program is exclusively for walkers, beginners and those more experienced. It features fitness experts, valuable information, stretching, and a fun and supportive environment.

Classes start at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 20 at Bellin Health Bellevue Fitness Center, 3263 Eaton Road, Green Bay.

Cross Training Classes are Free, Too

The Bellin Run also offers free cross training classes designed to make your preparations more effective by incorporating cross training into your plan.

The free weekly sessions feature proper dynamic warm-up, flexibility training, core strengthening, plyometric training, form running and strength training. Space is limited for these indoor sessions so weekly pre-registration is required.
