FireKracker 5K Training Program

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

The FireKracker 5K Training Program is designed to encourage, empower and take away all of the anxiety of running your first 5K or getting back to running.  The training plans lead up to running the FireKracker 5K on July 4th. The program starts each year in late-April or early May.

There are three (3) levels of training offered: first-timer, beginner and intermediate. All will include a once-a-week in-person run (if you are comfortable coming). Otherwise, the plan will outline what you should cover on your own during the week.

Please click here to complete the registration form and we will be in touch with you about next steps. The program kick-off is slated for Saturday, May 1st, location TBD.
