Breast Cancer Awareness 5k Challenges You to Get Fit by Again Offering the “Cancer Kicking Boot Camp” and “Triathlon Boot Camp”

Remember your New Year’s Resolution to get in shape this year? If you are like most people, that resolution lasted about two weeks. Why? The weather was bad, it is hard to self motivate, it was not fun to work out alone, and the list goes on. The Breast Cancer Awareness 5k Committee is removing all those barriers and offering you a low cost opportunity to train to run a 5k regardless of your age, ability, size, experience or fitness level. Over the past five years, we have trained literally hundreds of people to run 5k’s and many have went on to lose weight and do triathlons, half-marathons, and even full marathons. Everyone has to start somewhere and this is your opportunity in a fun, supportive group environment. The program offers groups of all fitness (or not) levels. The program starts with a seminar followed by eight weeks of group training. The seminar will be held at Whirlpool on May 19 at 6:00 pm. Training will be Tuesdays and Thursday starting on June 2 at 6:00 pm.

The culmination of the program will be when the new and improved athlete joins over 500 other runners at The Breast Cancer Awareness 5k on July 30. The Cancer Kicking Boot Camp is for those who would like to train as a group for the event. This is the sixth year for the training and the results to date have been very positive. The program fee is $35 per person. The cost covers the cost of the entry fee to the race, a team technical training shirt, and expert training provided by local runners.

For those seeking an additional challenge a Triathlon/Duathlon Boot Camp will be offered starting July 26 and meet Tuesday/Thursday until The Tri for a Cure August 20 in Greenville.
Trainers will focus on the swimming and cycling legs of the race with course previews and transition planning in a fun group environment.

Henry Ford once said, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right.” We think you can!
