ALBANY — Online registration for the 43rd Freihofer’s® Run for Women, which is set for Saturday, Sept. 25 at 9 a.m., is now open at freihofersrun.com.

Runners of all abilities looking to get in shape for the region’s premier all-women 5k can also sign up now for the Freihofer’s® Training Challenge, which begins Monday, July 12 at 17 sites in Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Dutchess counties. 

The 11-week program, which costs $55, follows a beginner’s 5k training plan, and features weekly, small group training sessions led by mentors. Participants also receive emails with each day’s workout schedule, a tech shirt, and clinics on strength training, nutrition, run form, and injury prevention. A convenient virtual program is also offered for those concerned about being around others or who plan to be away during the summer. For a $40 registration fee, participants receive weekly workout emails, a tech shirt, and the program’s educational resources sent electronically. 

The Training Challenge’s beginner’s program is for women who are new to running or are coming back after a break. The program starts with walking and jogging and progresses as the race date approaches. The intermediate program is for those who have completed a 5k or want more challenging workouts. The advanced program is for athletes ready for focused speed and distance workouts who should already be able to run 5 or more miles at a time.
