Race Description

Ready to get into better shape, but don't know where to begin? 

The Couch to 5k is an 8 week program designed for first time runners or those who are looking to get back into running but need a little guidance.  The goal is to have all walkers and runners able to complete a 5k by the end of the 8 weeks. 

Training will start Monday, September 18th at 6:15 pm from DNA Athletics. 

Meeting Days will be Monday's at 6pm and Thursday's at 6:15 pm.   

Included in the 8 Week Program-

2 weekly organized group runs. Coaches for each ability group (walkers, walk/runners).  A $10 coupon good towards your next pair of shoes at DNA. 2-3 workshops geared specifically towards new runners with speakers who are experts in their fields.  T-Shirts for all those who complete the program. 

At the end of the 8 weeks, all are encouraged to sign up and compete as a group in the Red Eye 5k in Joliet on Sunday, November 12th.  (This is a seperate fee for the race entry)


Pace Groups- 

Not everyone will be coming into the 8 week program in the same physical shape so we will break up into 2 groups. 


Group 1- Walkers- This is the perfect group for beginners and just looking to kick start themselves into a better lifestyle. 

Group 2- Walk/Runners-  This group is for those who have been somewhat active in recent months, getting in exercise a few times a week.
