Have fun!


No Boundaries

Who says training can't be fun? The CES professional coaches will help you run or walk faster and farther, feel better about yourself and have a great time doing it! We take an individual approach to understanding YOUR goals and definition of achievement, then we coach you every step of the way.

We've created a custom, 10-Week Training Program designed to teach you how to start (and stick with!) a successful running program. No experience is necessary! If you're saying to yourself, "I've never run before—is this program for me?", then we want you! If you can walk, you can join our program! If you conquered a 5k, and would like to complete a 10k, we can help you as well. We'll celebrate your achievements by participating in the following awesome events:

Ravenswood, a Neighborhood 5k (Sunday April 27)
Komen Race for the Cure (Sunday May 11)

Be sure to register for these races, as your No Boundaries registration fee does not include race entry. Although, all No Boundaries participants will receive a discount to the race. Tell us you are registering for the race and we will get you a discount code.
