The Melrose Running Club Walk To Run Program
is a 10-week program for individuals interested in becoming beginner runners.
The ninth edition of our Walk To Run
series will commence on April 25, 2017
, meeting at the Melrose Knights of Columbus, 23 West Foster Street.
The first meeting of the group will begin promptly at 7PM, but plan to be early (6:45PM) to submit your application. The group will then meet each Tuesday night for
an organized workout and be expected to repeat that week's routine on their own a few times during the week.
The program (outlined below) is modeled after several nationally developed programs and is designed to develop a beginner runner capable of running
continuously for 30 minutes. Articles and tips on running, shoe selection, and nutrition will be provided by members of the
Melrose Running Club.
Program applicants should be in good physical health (consult your physician before starting this exercise program), be able
to walk continuously for 30 minutes (prepare your legs with at least 8 days of walking, 20 minutes for the first four days and 30 minutes for the last four days),
and have a strong desire to learn how to run.
The fee to participate in this 10-week program is $30.00 per individual. This includes an individual membership to the Melrose Running Club for the rest of 2016!
