The 5k course will be along paved roads, sidewalks, and trails with moderate gains in elevation. The course will take runners throughout Downtown Farmville during peak fall foliage season, seeing restored homes, Longwood, the Avenues neighborhood, Dogwood Trail, and more!
Throughout the course there will be water stations and first aid available.
FAMILY WALK +
The 1-mile course will be along paved roads and sidewalks with minimal elevation changes.
Walkers will see Downtown Farmville, the historic Longwood Rotunda, and scenic High Street before crossing the finish line on the High Bridge Trail.
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.
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.
