BIG NEWS! We are offering our 5K training program at a one-time, special price of $50 leading up to the Baltimore Running Festival and the Race for the Cure. We want everyone to be a part of the amazing atmopshere at these two special days in Baltimore from our early morning pep talks at Pickles Pub before the Baltimore Running Festival to crossing the finish line at the new location of the Race for the Cure.

Whether you are a walker looking to take your first running steps or a 5K veteran looking to improve your race time this fall, there is a place in our training group for you! Each training program is broken up into two groups - beginner and intermediate.

Our 6-week training program is offered at all 8 of our locations across Maryland. You will meet twice a week in a supportive small group setting with an expert coach for speed workouts and group runs in addition to following a weekly training plan on your own.

During your 6 weeks you will also receive weekly emails with your training plan and motivation, access to an expert coach, running education on topics including hydration and injury prevention, a Run Happy premium training shirt and a 10% discount at all our stores.

Plus, if you join us for the Baltimore Running Festival, you're invited to Pickles Pub for a pre-race and post-race meet up. After you're done running we'll celebrate with food, drinks and lots of photos!

Ready to start? Groups will start at all stores the week of September 11th. Please check below for specific training dates and times.

Target Races: Komen Baltimore Race for the Cure on Sunday, October 15th and the Baltimore Running Festival 5K on Saturday, October 21st.
