Couch to 5k Connection Group

Our C25K, is a fantastic program that’s been designed to get just about anyone from the couch to running a 5k in just 9-10 weeks.  This Community Connection is led by Alex Fortson and Cody Griggs.  With little or no running background whatsoever, Couch to 5K will transform you from couch potato to regular runner—one that can even exceed 3.1 miles—in just two months. 

Many newcomers to running become discouraged by the difficulty associated with the activity because they start too fast and push too hard. Their bodies push back and they end up resenting running. The Couch to 5K plan, which consists of jogging and walking, isn’t just intent on getting you to race day, it has been specifically designed to instill a love of running. Each session should take around 30 minutes, three times per week, Monday, Tuesday, & Thursday.  Even if you are unable to join us at this location and/or time, don’t worry!  Join our group and you can run anywhere that is convenient for you and keep in contact with everyone through our social media platforms where weekly plans are posted.  To sign-up for C25K, click here!

This Community Connection Group is aligned with our annual 5K at VRC which is scheduled this year for September 22nd.
