Couch to 5K Training Program

Couch to 5KAbout the Program
Have you ever wanted to start running, but just aren’t sure how? Join us for a Couch to 5K program to gradually build up your running ability in just eight weeks. This program is for people looking for a structured introduction to running with support along the way. You will start off by alternating walking and running to build your strength.  There are also light strengthening exercises and stretching.
