Our clinic had a great time at the 2018 Fall 5K Classic! We had a huge group of runners out with our learn to run group who started from ground zero going all the way to running their first 5K ever (or at least first 5K in a long time).
It was amazing to see all of our teammates cross the finish line with a mix of smiles and exhaustion on their faces! Running a race for a beginner can be super daunting and intimidating task, but this crew banded together and conquered the challenge with hard work and positive attitudes from start-finish. For those who signed up with the team, our crew ended up averaging a very impressive time of 29:59! Not all of you appeared on this list for various reasons, sorry about that! Check out the full results HERE.
Here are some of our favourite pictures of the team from the event. You can check out our full album here.
