The OmRun Training program is a three month training program that helps first time runners start slowly, and improve steadily and be able to run upto a Half Marathon by the end of the three months. The training program is created, managed and run by very experienced runners, some of whom have run in excess of 50 Marathons.
Training Starts January 27, 2018
Every trainee has a MentorEvery trainee that signs up for the program is assigned a mentor who works with other mentors and the Coaches to direct the runners in his progress. The mentor assigned is typically based on physical location for weekday runs.
Weekday and Weekend Group Training
The training is split in two parts, weekday and weekend runs. Weekday runs usually involves running 2-3 times a week for shorter distances close to your home in small groups with their assigned mentor. The Weekend run, is where a large group meets together in one location and we all run longer distances together. Three such groups meet, one each in Fremont, San Ramon or San Jose/Los Gatos.
Trainees receive weekly updates on location and time for Weekend meets from the coaches.
Typically the Weekend Groups meet at these loctions:

Om Run 2018 Kids Training Program
After a successful program last year, we look forward to welcoming the kids from last year as well as lots of new kids for the Om Run 2018 training program. The younger kids really enjoyed having their own training program. It is a great way to build their own “running community” ! The training program is for 5K and 10K.
Let us instill in our children a regimen of fitness that they can carry out throughout their lives!!
Day: Every Sunday
Start Time: 4:30pm – 5:30pm
Location: Campbell Community Center,(meet at the track)
1 W Campbell Ave, Campbell, CA 95008
Minimum Age: 5 years
The training will start with a fun warm-up routine, a walk/run, followed by the post-run stretching routine. It is very important that you arrive on time (remember, early is on-time, on-time is late!!) to participate in the warm-up routine and stay after the run for the stretching. Both these are extremely important to avoid running related injuries or soreness after the run.
NO DROP-OFFS – At least one parent or adult needs to be with their child(ren) at all times.
While Omrun volunteers are glad to mentor your child, taking responsibility for your child is a major liability and Omrun will not take responsibility for your child nor will we take any exceptions lightly – NO EXCEPTIONS PLEASE**
Its a Journey
Training with team Om Run is not just a means to a goal but a beautiful journey in itself. The camaraderie inculcated during Om Run training has resulted in lifelong friendships and life changing habits to stay fit.
