The Most Motivational 5K Training Program Ever!

Charge Running · February 28, 2018

Charge Running’s 5K Training Program aims to put the spark back into the everyday run. No more tedious and generic guides to follow. Our program builds you into a stronger and faster runner! There’s no reason to train alone in monotony when you can train with a fun running community of people from around the world!

It’s time to throw out that old Excel training spreadsheet. Retire the “beep and run” system and commit to a training guide that offers high-quality coaching by experienced trainers. You’ll be encouraged through every run, walk, jog, and sprint. Plus, unlike programs that simply focus on when to stop and go, Charge focuses on how you should feel during each segment, eliminating any guesswork. The pride in our program stems from providing a proven system of training that allows every runner to stay motivated, love the process, and ultimately match or exceed their goals.

We’ve created a program where speed, strength, and aerobic endurance will be developed while you track your progress through high-effort milestone runs. With the goals set and progress laid out clearly in front of you, your motivation will be elevated every day. When you’re not crushing the 5K Training Program, we’ll be there for you through our LIVE Charge runs so you are never alone in your training journey.

Hit the road and get started with your 5k race training!

What is the 5k Training Program?

Our first runs are designed to get you into the swing of things and create a strong foundation. As you progress further, specific days of speed work, long runs, and threshold runs will prepare you to maintain different effort levels for longer durations. The diversity of training these different efforts is imperative to prepare for a race. Some programs focus on just speed or just long runs, which develops narrow skills versus the diversity that we offer to make you successful. Our effort-based system allows for all experience levels to flourish, from seasoned pros to brand-new runners who are beginning their journey.

Every 5K run will also feature a discussion topic presented by our trainers aimed at increasing your knowledge about training, health and nutrition, recovery, and injury prevention. Our goal is to create well-rounded, knowledgeable runners that enjoy training and can do it for life. The genuine desire of our trainers to provide resources both inside and outside of the app sets us a tier above the rest.

Why Use the 5k Training Program?

The trial of miles is not enjoyable when completed alone. Our live leaderboard lets you feel like you are right beside everyone else that is doing the 5K program. Plus, speed, intensity, and distance are recorded throughout to be viewed when you finish each run. Charge training closes the gap between live runs and recorded runs, creating an engaging group-run experience for any environment.

At Charge Running, we love motivating people to enjoy the sport of running so they embrace the miles and enjoy each step. We know that most 5K training programs out there are boring. They lack personality, excitement, and overall motivation. Our goal is to flip that model on its head. These are the features you get to look forward to:

  • 8 weeks of motivating instruction
  • 16 classes led by professional coaches
  • Running topics each day, from hydration to playlist curation
  • Killer music

Charge Running’s 5K Training Program is for you and everyone else because we all know that running alone sucks.

Charge on!

This seems like one of the best ways to train for a 5K. Wish it would have been around when I first started.
