Run for God

February 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

People take up running for many reasons, from weight loss to offseason conditioning for athletics to improved cardiovascular health. But did you know that running is an effective way to strengthen one’s faith as well? Run for God-the 5K Challenge is a guide to running and a twelve-week training plan aimed at running a 5K, but with a Christian focus. Author Mitchell Hollis introduces runners to the similarities between running and witnessing for Christ. The workout plans, discussion questions, and Bible verses make it both a practical resource and a workbook for individuals and groups, especially beginning runners. From advice about shoes and Christian music playlists to tips on race etiquette, the book will be useful and inspirational. Run for God is designed for all levels of runners, even those who have never run and WALKERS ARE WELCOME to join in. Learn to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ while understanding the parallels in enduring a sport like running and enduring your faith. Our first class will begin on Tuesday, February 15th at 6:00-7:30 p.m. We will meet each Tuesday evening through May 10th (no class March 22) for running instruction/mechanics and devotional, then finish with a workout. Mark your calendar for the Morgan Nick Heroes Run on Saturday, May 14th, this will be our celebratory 5K at the end of our journey. Feel free to contact Kathleen Halliburton if you have any questions at . Sign up today!
