Experience the Power of Group Training

  • Have you ever wanted to start running or do you consider yourself a "running rookie"?
  • Have you ever thought about doing a 5K but didn't know where to start?
  • Maybe you have started walking and want to progress to running an entire 5K without stopping.
  • This is the program for you and a great way to start 2023.

We know how hard it is to get started and stay motivated. This Space Coast Runners training camp is designed specifically for beginners. You'll be coached by Chris Daniele, a RRCA certified running coach and former collegiate runner at Florida Institute of Technology alongside Coach Kaitlin Donner of New Wave Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine. Coach Chris will work with you to design an individualized program to get you going and moving forward. The goal 5K race for camp is the Downtown Melbourne 5K* on Saturday, 25, 2023. 

Camp is open to all ages, shapes, sizes and running abilities. You do not have to be a member of Space Coast Runners to register. It's cheaper if you do (and you get all the SCR member perks). 

Athletes will receive:

  • Personalized 12-week training schedule through Training Peaks
  • Awesome Run with Us training shirt
  • Group Training Atmosphere
  • 20% off all New Wave services for duration of camp
  • Access to closed Facebook group for questions, encouragement and accountability
  • FREE Nutrition Workshop with Danielle Aran, Sports Dietitian
  • Weekly product samples and giveaways from featured partners

BONUS! Add a 1-hour group strength session each week at New Wave PT & Sports Rehab. These workout sessions address common strength and mobility imbalances in distance runners. 

Register early to receive the best pricing. Rates increase on January 1, 2023.

You might not imagine doing a 5K but we believe you can!

Join us in 2023.

*Registration for the Downtown Melbourne 5K is not included in the price of the Couch to 5K Beginner Training Program.
