Waubonsee Offers 5K Training

Waubonsee Community College is offering community members the opportunity to work with a fitness specialist to prepare for a 5K race. The 5K Training class is designed to be effective regardless of an individual’s previous running experience. Participants select the training plan they are comfortable with: beginner, intermediate or advanced, and can choose Tuesday morning sessions or late afternoon sessions on Thursdays. The Tuesday course runs June 6-July 25, while the Thursday course runs June 8-July 27.  

“This class is ideal for those who want to push past their current abilities, whether their goal is to run or walk/run a 5K,” explained Waubonsee’s Fitness Center Program Coordinator Michelle Anderson. “Participants will finish the class with the training and knowledge to complete a 5K at a pace that is right for them.” 

Tips on form, hydration, nutrition, clothing and shoes will also be covered to help runners get ready for the Sugar Grove Corn Boil 5K on July 29 or any other area 5K race.
