New or Returning Running Program


McKinney Running Club offers a running program for new or returning runners to the sport of running.  If you can’t run, but want to run, we will start easy at a pace you can achieve. We will begin with slow walk/run intervals with mostly walking. As your physical conditioning improves, you will gradually run more than walk. The goal is for you to run the whole way for 2 to 6 miles so you  can join other runners in our club who run at your pace.


We will meet as a group at least once a week, starting with Saturday mornings at 6:00 am. There will be other opportunities to run (or do run/walk intervals) with club members during the week. Times will be posted in advance.

This running program will be led by coach Mark, a Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) certified coach.

Before starting any exercise activity, please consult your doctor.

Registration fees go to the Daniel S. Crum Scholarship Fund. The program includes an individual running assessment, setting a goal for your training and a tailored training plan to attain your goals; whether it is to just run for 2 miles, prepare for a 5k, or 10k.
