Knoxville, TN -- September 14, 2015 -- Fleet Feet Sports Knoxville has partnered with the Arthritis Foundation to train Knoxville locals for the annual Jingle Bell Run/Walk this holiday season. Fleet Feet Knoxville’s 5k program, No Boundaries, focuses on helping runners and walkers of all abilities to achieve their 5k goals. It is truly a “couch to 5k” program, with many participants having never even run a mile before starting. Beginner runners who go through the program can attest to the No Boundaries motto: “Running changes everything.” Sign up to train HERE.
To kick of the training season, Jingle Bell Run/Walk sponsors Tennova and The Casual Pint – Downtown, are hosting kick off events on Wednesday, September 23rd at both their respective locations. Participants will have the chance to register to train with Fleet Feet Knoxville and the Jingle Bell Run/Walk, plus the opportunity to win prizes and learn about all about training, the race, and the Arthritis Foundation.
At 9:00 am, Tennova is hosting a kick-off party at the Physicians Regional Medical Center in the Heart Institute Waiting Area (900 E Oak Hill Avenue).
Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm, The Casual Pint Downtown in Market Square is hosting a kick off fun run followed by $1 off craft beers for runners and walkers.
