'At Home' / Online Training Option

“At Home” / Online Training

The Cancer to 5K “At Home” Training Program is available to survivors who would like to participate in Cancer to 5K, but live outside of our current group training areas. Cancer to 5K “At Home” participants will receive one-on-one coaching with a Cancer to 5K coach. Weekly workouts will be sent via email, and all participants will have access to their coaches via email and phone.

At the beginning of the program, the Cancer to 5K coach will work with his/her participant to identify a local 5K race that will serve as the Cancer to 5K goal race. All participants registered in the Cancer to 5K “At Home” program will receive complimentary race registration.

All participants should review the training program with their treatment team. A Medical Waiver will be provided that must be signed by the participant’s current physician before starting the program to ensure training for a 5K won’t negatively impact your treatment or recovery.

Meet the “At Home” Training Coaches

Emma Rando

2nd season

“I first got involved with Cancer to 5K after participating in 4K for Cancer’s ride across America. In addition to cycling, I am an avid runner and have always found it to be an empowering and motivational tool. I ran in high school, college, and now I enjoy training for races with my close friends. My coaching philosophy is “you get what you give” with a little hard work, a lot of dedication, and most importantly joy, I believe no dream is out of reach. I hope my athletes walk away from this program with the same sense of self-efficacy, empowerment, and confidence with which running has graced me with. One thing my participants should know about me, and yet they probably do not, is that I rode my bike from Baltimore to San Francisco in 2014 to raise money for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, and had the time of my life doing it!”
