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 Tuesday, May 30th at 6 pm from DNA Athletics. (The first week we are meeting on Tuesday because Monday is a National Holiday. Every other week will be Monday)

Meeting Days will be Monday's at 6pm and Thursday's at 6 pm.  (Except week 1 where we will meet Tuesday and Thursday.)


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. 3-4 workshops geared specifically towards new runners with speakers who are experts in their fields.  T-Shirts for all those who complete the program. End of Program Party sponsored by Brooks!!

At the end of the 8 weeks, all are encouraged to sign up and compete as a group in the Sundowner 5k in Joliet on Thursday, July 20th.  


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.
