Couch to 5k
This 10 week program, which is currently running from June 9th through August 11th, is designed for those who are just starting out running or are looking to get back into it after some time off. In particular, it is geared for those who are looking for a support network to keep them motivated and having fun! We have two primary goals: 1) Help you complete a 5k at your own pace and 2) Help you learn to love running, which is why we will be spending time enjoying the beautiful trails at the Greenway – running along shady trails, splashing through creeks and walking past historic sites. We will provide a 10 week training program as well as a way for you to communicate with your fellow runners. For more informaitlon about times and meeting locations, click here.
