5K Training – We’ll help you every step of the way


Do you want to run in a 5K but don’t know where to start? Have you run in a 5K and would now like to improve your time? Well, you’re in luck! This year, Hilton Head Health is offering a free 5K Training Program to anyone who is planning to participate in an upcoming 5K!

We are a little more than eight weeks away from celebrating the life of beloved H3 staff member Devin Sheaffer through one of his favorite activities: running! Last year you helped up raise over $10,000 for the American Cancer Society at the Devin’s Dash Memorial 5K and this year, we’re hoping the race will be even bigger and better.

As we prepare for Devin’s Dash 2011, we’d like to invite you to join our first ever 5K Training Program! Like similar training programs such as Couch to 5K, this program provides you with a all the tools you’ll need to get physically and mentally ready for your 5K! Whether you’ll be in Hilton Head for Devin’s Dash on October 8th, or are planning to participate in a 5K near you, by the end of this program you’ll feel prepared for your race.

The Devin’s Dashers training program includes:

  • A Running Coach available to answer your questions and guide you every step of the way via e-mail and Facebook.
  • Weekly lessons to help enhance your performance by learning important components of training.
  • Daily training tips, motivational quotes, and stories from previous H3 Guests and H3 staff members who have participated in a 5K in the past.
  • Invitation to join a private Facebook Group where you and other members of the training program can openly encourage and learn from one another. Who knows, you may even find a training buddy!

There are three different plans available: a beginners plan for those who would like to only walk or walk/jog during their training, an intermediate plan for semi-regular runners who would like to improve their 5K running time through track workouts and tempo runs, and an advanced plan for regular runners that incorporates even more track workouts, tempo runs and distance runs than the intermediate plan.

Training begins Monday, August 15th ! The last day to join the program will be this Friday, August 12th so gather your friends and sign up today! E-mail your Training Coach, Amy Kelderhouse, at akelderhouse@hhhealth.com, (subject: I want to be a Devin’s Dasher) if you would like to sign up to be a Devin’s Dasher, or have any questions about the training program.

We look forward to training with you!
