5K Training Guide for Beginners
Running a 5K race can be a daunting prospect for many beginners who search online for a 5K training guide for beginners to help them train for their 5K race. But there are now far better FREE 5K training guides for beginners that are delivered daily into a mobile app, such as Get Event Fit.
Experts agree that successful 5K race preparation, especially for beginners, must involve more than simply improving running fitness — effective, injury free preparation requires strength and conditioning of the whole body with active recovery strategies, correct nutrition and a positive mindset.
However, the typical downloadable PDF training guide for beginners that you can find by searching the Internet, simply outline a week-by-week running fitness schedule. It’s very difficult for a PDF to educate, inspire and regularly motivate everyday throughout your training journey and the more pages a PDF contains, the more overwhelming it becomes and the less likely it is to be read.
Virtuathon have partnered with Get Event Fit who provide all our event training, including our 5K training guides for beginners.
The Virtual Runathon 5K, 10K and Half Marathon virtual races are designed to increase in distance to challenge you as your fitness grows. Virtual races can be completed at your own pace, individually or as a team, anywhere you like – at home, in the gym or your local footpath. And to help you fully prepare for your 5K race we’ve included comprehensive 5K training guides for beginners from Get Event Fit.
