Campus Recreation’s Couch to 5K is a 10-week progressive training program with the goal of helping individuals go from inactivity to running/jogging a 5K race. The program will safely progress in length and speed each week, starting with timed walks and culminating with a 5K road race later in the semester. Participants do not need to have any previous running or racing experience-this program is designed with beginners in mind!
