The CrossFit Open 2016 is now upon us and everyone has been really killing it each and every week! The Open is often something people use as a goal to increase their performance, strength, and conditioning. At CrossFit Off the Grid, we love seeing you guys set and reach your goals! With that said, CrossFit Off the Grid members have been participating in the Step Up for The Arc 5k for the past few years. We would like to continue this tradition. Beginning on April 3rd, we will be starting a five (5) week running program/club for interested members. While The Arc 5k will be a milestone, participation in that run is not required in order to be a part of the running program/club. We welcome and encourage all of our members who want to improve their running performance to join each week!
Here are the details:
When? Every week on Sunday at 9:30am beginning April 3rd, The Arc 5k is on May 7th
Where? Williamstown High School Track (for the running club + The Arc 5k)
Who? Anyone interested in running with the goal of The Arc 5k as their goal, or just wanting to run with friends on a Sunday. Coach Kate will lead the program!
What you’ll need? A smart watch or smart phone to be able to do some time/distance tracking (your iPhone will suffice!)
This CrossFit Off the Grid program is FREE for members (there is a $20 fee for the Arc 5k registration). Additionally, the programming will be available on Wodify on Sundays for those who need to miss any of the dates, or for those who simply cannot make it to the track on Sundays. There will also be scaled versions of the runs if you’re just getting started or looking for a “lighter” workout. If we get a good turnout, we will consider running another program over the summer, etc.
Keep in mind that you are not required to sign up for The Arc 5k, the event is a goal to keep everyone motivated but in no way required, only suggested as a fun milestone that you can complete with fellow CrossFit friends. All proceeds from the 5k benefit The Arc Gloucester’s Camp Sun ‘N Fun, a residential camp for children and adults with intellectual and related developmental disabilities. The 5K will take place on Saturday, May 7th at Williamstown High School and following the run, participants from CrossFit Off the Grid will be invited to head out for breakfast/brunch with Coach Kate!
