Not only does Talbot Humane turn 90 on August 4th, but our amazing program – UNLEASHED celebrates 10 years of ordinary people doing extraordinary things for the animals! Since 2012 we estimate this program has helped close to 500 runners cross finish lines and raise almost $400,000 for the animals of our community.
This wholly supportive, non-competitive program will take everyone- from couch potato to weekend warrior- and teaches & trains you through the Galloway run: walk program. You are put in a pace group with others of the same fitness level. You encourage each other and WILL cross that finish line together each week of training, and at the final day- race day!
In exchange for fully supported training runners commit to raising funds for Talbot Humane. “It is truly a win: win situation,” says veteran UNLEASHER Sara Rhoades. “I never would have thought I could finish a half marathon 10 years ago- and here I am still running and racing today at age 71 with UNLEASHED! If you are looking to change your life- this is the group for you.” Changing your life and the lives of animals- what could be better?
This year we are training for the Richmond Half Marathon. It a race we have trained members for in the past, so we know all the ins and outs of race day! The first day of training is August 13th, and informational meeting is August 3rd.
If you have any questions about the program, want to sign up in advance, or want to be added to our informational email list for UNLEASHED contact Head Coach Amy at [email protected] or call 410-822-0107.
