Couch To 5K Program At The Y

The popular Couch to 5K program has helped couch potatoes get up off their sofas and onto the roads, turning them into runners in just two months. We will get you off on the right foot by working out 3 times a week, beginning with walking and working up to running three miles or more.  Graduation will be the finish line of the Y’s Leprechaun Loop run on March 16. Classes include warm up, core fitness, walking, running, stretching and cooling down. Class registration includes entry into the Leprechaun Loop run – because whatever you are now, you become a runner when you get your first race number. The running portion will be outside so dress appropriately. This class begins Tuesday, January 15. and is held:
Tuesdays, Thursdays, & Saturdays: January 15 – March 16
6:30 pm – 7:30 pm (Tues & Thurs) & 9:00 am – 10:00 am (Sat)
Ages – 18 – 99
Member – $45.00
Non-Member – $75.00
