The Festival of Miles is Friday, May 26, and we want you to be mile ready! Whether you’re training for a 1-mile race or a marathon, you grow your fitness one mile at a time.

If you're new to this process, or coming back from time off, the mile is a perfect distance to embrace. Once you can run a mile safely and comfortably, there is no limit to what you can accomplish. Click on the title to find a 5-week training plan. Let's go run a mile!
