Interested in shepherding the next generation of runners to the start line? Check this out:

Highmark is offering Running 101 again this year, and we’re looking for coaches and assistant coaches to help new runners train for and run their first 5K.

Training starts Monday, July 8 and the goal is to run The QUAD Games 5K on Saturday, September 14.

As a coach or assistant coach, you’ll work with a group of individuals for one hour, one evening each week for 10 weeks at a designated community site in or around Erie. The registration link below will take you to a site that outlines what days and times are needed for each community site.

We’ll provide step-by-step training curriculum, which includes information about general race preparation, physical activity progression, basic nutrition and motivation. No prior coaching experience is required, but you must meet the following criteria to be a coach:

  • * Hold a health-related degree, OR hold an active fitness certification (Certified Personal Trainer/Group Exercise Instructor)
  • * Be CPR-certified or are willing to be certified
  • * Have previously run a 5K, at a minimum
  • * Jog or run for personal physical fitness

To be an assistant coach, you must have:

  • * Previously participated in a 5K, at a minimum
  • * Regularly/occasionally run or jog for personal physical fitness
  • * CPR certified or willing to be certified

At the end of the program, you will receive a special thank you gift: a $100 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods.
