Train for the Historic Charleston Distance Run!

Train for the Historic Charleston Distance Run!

Genesis Running has two great group training classes for the summer season and both of them finish with the historic Charleston Distance Run on Saturday, September 1st.

If you've ever wanted to run but didn't know where to start then this is for you!  


For our beginner 5k class we have five locations in Charleston, Teays Valley, Huntington, Eleanor and Princeton.  All of our summer classes meet on Mondays starting July 2nd at 6:00 pm and you can learn more and register from here. 

The CDR 15 miler meets on Tuesdays in Charleston for group runs on July 3rd and all of the information including registration information is here. 

You can learn more about the lead coaches and also watch some past highlight videos to see folks just like you crossing the finish line of their first 5k. 

More information is available on our Facebook page and you can also use this page to invite others to join the class.

It's never just about the run. Do you believe that?

See you out there-
