The BWC Women’s Training Program is presented to prepare you for the Mercy Baltimore Women’s Classic 5K. Our goal is to provide a fun, inexpensive and supportive workout, and to encourage women to embark on a lifelong program of fitness.

The training is broken into four groups, depending on your own goals and physical condition. Whether you have yet to start a walking program, or are a seasoned runner looking to improve your race time, one of our groups will be right for you. We offer groups for:

  • Beginning & Intermediate Walkers
  • Walker to Run
  • Beginning Runners
  • Intermediate Runners

Our coaches will help you determine the best group for you. You are also welcome to change groups at any time during the program based on your progress or fitness level. There is a great deal of flexibility—you can alter the workouts to meet your needs—our coaches will help you find the right workout to achieve your personal running/walking goals.

Each week’s training session will be held from 6:30 – 7:30 pm and will include speakers on a variety of fitness-related topics, a warm-up session and a great workout.  Participants also get a training program tee shirt at the end of the program if they attend 4 or more training sessions.

Training will start the week of May 14th and will conclude with the Mercy Baltimore Women’s Classic 5K on June 24, 2018.
