So you want to run the 5K next year?

There may be some of you out there who maybe have participated in the fun run before, but would really like to run the 5K, yet you have no idea where to start… Well, look no further, there is a training program just for you called Couch to 5K (C25K)

This program is aimed at true beginners, and in just 9 weeks you can literally go from sitting on the couch to running 5K races. Ben and Tim Day has had a few C25K runners in the past running their first 5K at Ben and Tim Day. Could this be you in 2014?

Pledge to run your first 5K at Ben and Tim Day 2014!  Just get in the 3 workouts each week according to the following table, set your own schedule, but they should be on different days:

October 2013 Updates

The committee would like to thank those of you who responded to our survey regarding this year’s Ben and Tim Day events. It provided some very useful insights that are enabling us to improve next year’s event.

One big improvement is coming that we can share: Next year, there will be no Active.com fees for online registrants! Online and offline registration will be the same price. We hope by eliminating the additional fee, more people will be able to register online. By registering online you save having to fill out paper forms and save having to mail or bring in the form. This also improves accuracy of registration data and saves us a significant amount of time in the critical week before the race processing offline registrations.

We are actively seeking sponsors for next years race, if you or your company would be interested in becoming a sponsor, please fill out our contact form and we will be in touch.

Stay tuned for more updates as we prepare for next years race!
