Couch to 5K running program starts today

-A A +A

TELL CITY – A running program called Couch to 5K is set to begin today at Everbody’s Fun and Fitness Center, 710 Fulton Street in Tell City.

This program is intended to take novice runners and in seven-and-a-half weeks,  slowly work them up to completing the May 11 Mother’s Day 5K Fun Run.

This C25K session will be open to any adult in the community who would like to go from being a bystander at the numerous 5K races being sponsored around the area to running in the races. Runners will meet three days a week and progress through a timed run-walk routine to running longer distances until they can run the 5K distance.

The first session will meet at 5:30 p.m. with an informational meeting followed by the first training run.

Registration and information forms can be picked up during normal business hours at Everbody’s.

For more information, contact Russ Christensen at 619-0502 or Chris Thornton at 719-3425.
