Ready to run your way to a healthy you?

This beginners training program will take you from the couch to the 5k finish line in eight weeks!

What is it?

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

How does it work?

You'll 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'll gradually build to jogging more as race day approaches.
