Train for the Firekracker 5K with Fort Collins Running Club!

The second session of Fort Collins Running Club training programs, RunningU will kickoff on April 22nd at 8am at the North Side Atzlan Rec Center.  See more info on the Facebook event.

It’s a Zero to 5K program designed to encourage, empower and take away all of the anxiety of running your first 5k or getting back to running. We’ll also feature an Intermediate Plan for those looking to improve their 5K time.  The training plans lead up to running the FireKracker 5K on July 4th.

Running U Hats

We’ve received several requests for Fort Collins Running Club branded apparel and gear lately. We’d love for you to be sporting your FCRC pride around town and at races which is why we’ve partnered with local company, Sport About and created an online FCRC store for you to purchase your own gear. There’s a link to the store at the bottom of each newsletter, so go check it out! We also have RunningU hats available for only $10! These are available while supplies last at any of our RunningU Sunday training runs, schedule is here. Just remember to bring cash or check!
