Run with Me FAQ


What is Run with Me Team?

Run with Me Team members accepted the challenge to sign up for a 5K race to celebrate the tenth anniversary of TSA. Through preparing for and actually running in the 5K races, the Run with Me Team promotes and encourages physical fitness. It is a virtual team. Everybody selects his/her own 5K race in his/her area and signs up for it there.

We are drawn together by our shared belief in the power of running to improve health, fitness, and overall well-being. In addition to finding running enjoyable, we share at least one other thing in common: the pride of working for the TSA.

We want to inspire others to go beyond their comfort zone, test the waters of a 5K, cross a finish line, and live life to the fullest.

Is Run with Me an official, employer sponsored activity?

No. All Run with Me Team members participate in this initiative during their own time and no TSA resources are used.

What is 5K?

A 5K run is 3.1 miles. Running a 5K is an excellent goal for new runners. The 5K run is the perfect challenge for anyone. It is big enough leap to test your physical and mental resolve but not so far that it requires obsessive amounts of training to meet the demands.
