The Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club is offering a VIRTUAL summer training program for women in preparation for the Women's Distance Festival 5k.  The program provides the opportunity to improve fitness while learning about running in an encouraging, friendly and collaborative atmosphere.  


The training program is free for Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club members. Please join the club prior to signing up for the training program. The club membership fee is only $20, and includes a host of benefits.  If you're not sure if you've joined or renewed with the Steeplechasers this year, you can check your membership status on our member page.

Since our women's 5k training program will be held virtually this year,  our participants will be able to train safely under the direction of our team of coaches.  This is actually great for runners who may find it difficult to meet at a specific time and place. Train anywhere - even outside the Frederick, Maryland area - and stay in touch with our facebook group and email communication!


Our 5k training program is appropriate for both beginners/walkers and more experienced runners.  Our coaches will initially sort participants into appropriate groups, but the groups are very flexible and participants will be able to shift around as necessary over the course of the summer.


The 5k training program will begin in early June.
