Adult Health & Fitness Programs




Goal: To Finish- This level is for individuals whose goal is to finish a Crim Race Event.  It will focus on group support, setting goals, and maintaining physical activity.  There is no track or speed work involved, and walkers and runners of all levels are welcome. 

Time Goal- This level is for individuals whose goal is to improve their race time in a Crim Race Event.  It will focus on speed, improving “goal” times from previous races and will include track workouts.  Participants should be able to run or walk 4 miles on day one of training.  This level is aimed toward intermediate and advanced walkers/runners.



10 Mile- Running or walking programs for all fitness levels from beginners to experienced.  Gradual distance and endurance training plan for those who want to complete the Crim 10 mile event.

5k (3.1 miles)/8k (4.9 miles)- Running or walking programs well suited to those just starting an exercise program or endurance training for those who wish to participate in the Crim 5k or 8k race. 
(available in Goal:  To Finish Level ONLY)

Participants will be able to self-select their group according to their starting pace time* online.  On the online application, a drop box will display with a range of pace times.  Select your starting pace time* and groups within that time range will appear.  You will be able to see the group leaders assigned to each group and how many spaces are filled or left within each group.  If you are a new participant, and/or do not know your starting pace time, placement nights will take place at a location/time TBD.

*Please note:  as this is the first year participants can register through self-selection, there is the possibility that groups and/or leaders will be rearranged or consolidated as needed based on participant registration.  You are likely to get into the group that you choose, but the groups will not be finalized until registration closes.

Starting pace time is the amount of time per mile it takes one to walk/run COMFORTABLY with the intent to maintain that speed/pace for the duration of the walk/run.  Speed will naturally increase as you become more fit and increase your endurance through weekly training sessions. 
Please note:  Starting pace time is NOT how fast you can run/walk one mile.
To calculate starting pace time on your own:
Run/walk a mile at YOUR best pace you can.  Take that time and add 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
Example:  One mile walk/run time:  10 minutes
10 minutes + 2:30
= Starting pace time = 12:30
