Next Step Building to Bagel 2023

Register Here! (Registration closes on October 8th)

Want to build to a 10K distance in an easy-going, socially oriented program? Ever thought about participating in the Saturday morning Bagel Runs, but thought it was too intimidating? Join us for Next Step Building to Bagel!

This is a nine-week program, building your long run distance from 2 miles to 6 miles, ending with an early morning Bagel Run, and a post-run breakfast on us. After a two mile time trial on the first night, you will be matched with other runners of similar pace and a coach who will guide your group through your training.

Questions? Ask your coordinators
