The Couch to 5K (C25K) program is designed to help beginning runners get off the couch and complete their first race. We know 3.1 miles can sound daunting and we’re here to help you each step of the way.
For nine weeks, you’ll meet with fellow beginning runners weekly to train and gradually gain confidence with the help of Corridor Running mentors. At the end of the session, you’ll be ready to safely and effectively run your first 5K at a local race. Register now!
