KAR Fast Track 5k and 10k Logo


Based on the great success of our 2013 sessions, Kalamazoo Area Runners in Battle Creek (KAR in BC) is pleased to offer our second annual Spring Fast Track training program in Battle Creek! We are looking forward to continuing the 5K program – AND – we are excited to be adding a 10k training program, including a 5k to 10k transition level. The Fast Track 5k and 10K training programs each offer three levels of track workouts designed to meet your goals whether beginner, intermediate, or experienced runner.


Fast Track Training includes training schedules, individualized clinics and assessments and structured Tuesday track workouts. Sessions will be held at Riverside Elementary on Tuesday nights from 5:45-7 p.m. and will utilize the main loop around the Riverside Elementary/Park soccer fields. While we know this will be different than using an actual track, we believe it also offers several advantages, including the setting and continued training opportunities throughout the week and after the program ends.
