Couch to 5k Training Program

Couch to 5k

Ready to run your way to a healthy you?

This beginners training program will take you from the couch to the finish line of your first 5K in eight weeks! 

WHAT IS IT?
Prepare to run your first 5k in this 3 day/week training program.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
You’ll meet with a training group twice/week and train once/week on your own. Your sessions will include intervals of walking and jogging to increase endurance while staying injury-free, then you'll gradually build to jogging more as race day approaches.
