Walk to Run 5K Training Program

Walk to Run is a beginner runner program that will progress over a month period in preparation for the Community Run 5k and Cherry Blossom 5K events. The progressions will increase weekly to help each individual to reach their walking, jogging, and/or running goals. The program meets twice a week for 40 minutes. You will meet other goal-minded individuals that will help you achieve your goals and a personal trainer will lead the group. Let’s meet to achieve our goals!
