Whether you’re just getting started or are an experienced runner who needs a push, the Couch-to-5K Challenge makes working out simple, social, and fun. In just two months you’ll go from couch potato to running three miles (or 5K) on a regular basis.
You’ll start each session with a brisk walk, and then walk/run, for about 20 or 30 minutes, three times a week — which is the same amount of moderate exercise recommended by numerous studies for optimal fitness.
We’ll give you all the tools you need to get motivated, get connected with others and chart your progress as you move towards your goal of completing a 5K.
