The Perfect Race
for Beginners

If you’re new to running, signing up for a race is the perfect way to kick off your routine and boost motivation. This 2-week Runner’s World 5-K Training Jumpstart will help get you build your base to prepare for a full-length training plan.

  • Train 3 days a week. Running just a few times a week will get you where you need to be.
  • Go at your own pace. The emphasis in this plan is distance, not speed, so you don’t have to worry about your finish time.
At a Glance

The Runner’s World 5-K Training Jumpstart program gives you everything you need to gear up for race day. The plan includes:


  • Running workouts: Short, easy runs gradually increase in distance each week to improve your stamina and speed.


  • No strict eating plan! Just follow the daily workouts and turn fat into lean muscle.


  • A fringe benefit of training: You’ll burn major calories and peel off pounds! The easy-to-use weight tracker charts your progress along the way.
