Running at the library? Sure! Starting in June, the Madison County Public Library will sponsor a group of runners as they venture through the Couch to 5k running program. Couch to 5k starts with alternating intervals of walking/jogging and slowly builds to 5k race endurance over a nine week period. The team will train together on a weekly basis, and culminate the program by running a 5k race in the fall. Those interested in participating should plan to attend an organizational meeting on:
Tuesday, June 11th in Richmond or Thursday, June 13th in Berea
We meet at the college tracks in Richmond and Berea. You can come to either or both.
Out first runs will be on Tuesday, June 25 in Richmond and Thursday, June 27th in Berea.
As the sun begins to set earlier, we will adjust the start time for our runs. Any changes in schedule will be posted to Facebook
Join us and get on your way from couch to 5k! Attend half or more group runs to earn a Couch to 5K running shirt. This year Couch to 5K graduates will receive paid entry in the Spoonbread Festival 5K
