training sessions, you will be participating in a group run/walk along with receiving nutrition and

additional fitness coaching that supports your goal of running. This eight week training program puts

you on pace to participate in the Fargo Marathon 5k Run Fun on Friday, May 18th.

Participants should have the ability to walk for 25-30 continuous minutes prior

Pickleball/River Activities

PICKLEBALL

Pickleball is a racquet sport which combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis.

The sport is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court. The

net is lower than most other racquet sports allowing for faster play. The game is played with a

hard paddle and a wiffle ball, making the technique required for Pickleball different than other

sports. www.usapa.org

Locations: Village Green Park - 1 court • Riverview Estates Park - 1 court

Time: Evenings starting at 6:30 pm till dusk

May through September, when wind is less than 20 mph
