Youth Center, 99 Centerway, Greenbelt, MD 20770. Directions: From
Greenbelt Road (near Rt. 295) turn on Southway. Proceed straight
through two stop signs (after stopping!) To Centerway.
Kilometers (3.1 miles). The course will start just outside of the
Greenbelt Youth Center and loop around the perimeter of the Albert S.
"Buddy" Attick Lake. The course is a 5 kilometer, virtually paved
dirt path that provides one of the most beautiful picturesque settings
in the county. For those that have an appreciation of wildlife,
you will see Canadian Geese overhead or in the lake, turtles slipping
into the lake as you pass by, or an occasional red fox scampering in
However for those looking for a PR, this course
will provide the opportunity and the challenge of a mostly flat fast
course, but with a couple of short, quick inclines. We think that
this race will attract some of the best talent in the county.

TRAINING FOR A 5K:If your training starts now, it
should give you plenty of time to build somewhat of a base, and even be
able to do some specific training for the event. Your training
needs will vary depending upon if this is your first race or you've
done 5K's before, and this is just a "stepping stone" for bigger events
to come. Your approach would be similar, but your intensity might
vary. One thing is for sure, the 5K distance will present an
exciting challenge for seasoned runners such as myself, or for someone
attempting it for the first time — it's all relative. One thing
that you may want to consider is building slowly, but
consistently. Your biggest rewards will be realized if you're
running a minimum of 3-4 times a week. Whether that run consist
of a run/walk technique, jogging or all out running an 8:30 mile.
Try not to build to quickly, but push yourself beyond your last week's
training goals, allowing your training to peak at just about the time
of the event.
I run with a group of runners (PG Runners), and
we're usually running at Buddy Attick Park in Greenbelt in the evening.
You're always welcome to do some of your runs with us. The
course is dirt path around the lake perimeter — my number is (301)
