Group of people running

Ready to run your way to a healthy you?

This running program will take you from the couch to the finish line of a 5k in 8 weeks, or you can choose to train for a 10k over the course of 12 weeks.

What is it?

Prepare to run a 5k or 10k in this 3 day/week training program.

How does it work?

You will train with a coach twice/week on campus 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 will gradually build to jogging more as race day approaches. The training program is tailored to your goals and your experience.
