TAR HEEL TRAINING GROUP
For employees who are new to the idea of participating in a race, the Town Wellness Committee is excited to announce a free Tar Heel Training Group!
Emily Powell, from TOCH Fire, will lead a 12-15 week program to prepare beginning runners for the Fleet Feet 4 Miler.
A 4 mile walk/run or run is both doable and rewarding! This is a complete program, not a drop in run.
A true team, the group will meet 2 times a week for evening runs. The Tar Heel Training Group is for both beginning runners AND experienced runners to help motivate and serve as group leaders. Contact Emily Powell at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 336-508-0636.
