Have you ever wanted to run a road race? Has the thought of going out for a run to blow off some steam ever tempted you? Couch to 5k is the program for you.
Couch to 5k is a training program designed to have you at the starting line of a 5k road race in just 7 weeks. This program starts off with walking and gradual running. Week by week you walk a little less and run a little more. Before you know it, your goal of completing your first 3.1 mile run is underway.
Each week participants will meet at various places around town for a weekly training session. There will also be a couple of workouts participants are responsible for completing during the week on their own. After these amazing 7 weeks of training, participants will pin on a race dib and hit the road for a 5k road race and trail FUN RUN!
The training sessions will be instructed by Kristie Jones. Kristie is a veteran runner that is full of knowledge and has a strong admiration for the sport of running.
Please wear comfortable workout clothes. Wear your most comfortable tennis shoes and bring a water bottle.
