It is hard for people to get motivated to run their first 5k if they don't know where to start. That is why founder of Skirt Sports, Nicole DeBoom started a program called Running Start. The program is free. Once you are accepted they pair you up with a runner who has already achieved their first 5k and you start to train together. The finish line for this program takes place on June 3rd by running a 5k at the Skirt Sports 13er 5k/10k. To apply for this program go to Running-start.org. The application deadline is Feb 8th.
