Set big goals, then go after them. 

This year, join us at Winston-Salem's hometown YMCA Mistletoe Half Marathon & 5K as a FIRST TIMER.  We will get you ready for race day, and you'll be celebrating your bold goal at the finish line.  At Fleet Feet Sports, we set BIG BOLD GOALS.  And...our goal this year is to help 100 FIRST TIME half marathoners run the Mistletoe race, and 500 FIRST TIME 5K runners hit that finish line!  JOIN US!

Now is the time to achieve that goal you've been dreaming of!  This program is designed for FIRST TIME 5K runners and FIRST TIME half marathoners.  Half marathon participants should be able to run a comfortable 5 miles by October 28th.   5K training participants that have never run before should expect to be able to do a combination of running/walking for the 3.1 mile race distance.
