We created this event because we believe anyone can finish a 10K, and everyone benefits from better fitness—it is one of the foundations to living a BOLD life.
We offer a few tips and ways to get ready below whether you are a walker starting from scratch or a regular runner.  

Exercise will improve your mental state. Exercise 2-4 days a week. Rest in between. Walk as much as you need to. Jog as much as you can. Improve a little bit each week.
Mix it up. Mix in hiking, swimming, skiing, cycling, rowing, elliptical, or anything else you enjoy that gets your heart rate up. 
Set a personal goal. Set an achievable goal for your current situation. Write it on the back of your bib. Commit to it and you’ll make it happen. Ideas: Finish it. Walk faster. Jog the last mile. Run the whole thing without stopping. Set a finish time. Beat last year’s finish time. Beat your mom or dad. Set a PR (personal record).
