Couch to 5k with the Southside YMCA!

The popular Couch to 5K program has helped thousands of people leave their couches and run up to 3.1 miles, and many participants run much farther! Your first runs will include alternating walking and jogging, running small distances, and building up strength and endurance. After eight weeks, the goal is for you to be able to run five kilometers or for 30 minutes non-stop.

Rules

No skates, bicycles, roller blades or skateboards allowed on the race course without prior approval.  Baby joggers, running strollers and participants in wheelchairs are welcome.  Baby joggers and strollers will be asked to begin at the back of the race. 

Pets must be friendly, up to date on all shots, and on a leash at all times.
