Sound Interesting?

5K (3.1 miles) training program is a 10 week conditioning program, whether walking or running is the preferred sport.  5K Finish is open to all levels of walkers, runners, and interval training. During the 10 weeks we will focus on the dynamics of walking and running, proper form, and educating our participants on how to manage and conserve energy during the workout to finish strong ad keep risk of injuries down.  No experience necessary.

Our 5K FINISH Program kick-off will be on Monday, SEPTEMBER 10TH at 6:00pm in Kingsport and Johnson City!

We now offer two locations for the program! Whether you're trying to start something new or simply sticking to your current goals, the 5K FINISH Fall training program is a great way to get up and get moving. This Fall, the goal race(s) will be the Turkey Trot in Johnson City, and the Chase The Turkey 5K in Kingsport. This 10-week program will meet twice a week, for coached training sessions. Participants will be divided into three groups during the training based on their current fitness level. This program is very non-intimidating and encouraging. Past participants have had success with their training goals and have made friends to keep running with. The cost is $80 for a single person or $100 for a family (up to 2 immediate members). While in the program, members will receive 10% off shoes, apparel, and accessories. Race Day Registration is not included in $80 program fee.

5K Finish is a beginner 5K (3.1 miles) training program designed for people who are currently inactive or new to running and walking. While 5K Finish focuses on beginners, all levels of walkers and runners are welcome. The program is structured to help you cross the finish line in just 10 weeks!  Along the way we’ll provide you with motivation to keep you moving, guidance and advice, weekly group training runs or walks, and educational clinics on topics such as proper nutrition, choosing the right gear, and avoiding injury. Plus, you’ll have the camaraderie of others just like you!

We hope to see you here. Please direct questions to us.
