GO GO...Get up and get moving. Enjoy the fact that you live in the city known as Wisconsin's Park Place! Whether you're just getting started or are an experienced runner who needs a push off the couch, this Couch to 5K Challenge makes working out simple, social and fun. This program aims to prepare you slowly by starting off alternating between walking and running small distances in a variety of our parks, and slowly building up to run a 5K race.
The class will meet once a week as a group with the instructor, while the second and third training days will be completed on your own or by meeting up with friends in the group. The program will include nutritional, strength training and stretching information.
At the end of the program, participants will run a 5K race on June 2 (second fee for 5k is required if interested).
The class will meet on Tuesdays at 6 - 7 p.m. from April 3 – May 29. The class is open to adults ages 18+ and costs $45/person. Participants will meet at Peace Park Pavilion on April 3, then at various City parks for dates to follow.
Please pre-register online or at the Janesville Recreation Division office by Thursday, March 29. Please contact the Recreation Division with any questions at (608) 755-3030
