Couch to 5K: Train for the YMCA Turkey Trot

Train for the Main Event: The YMCA Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving – Thursday, November 23

Find community with others who want to train gradually from beginner to completing the 3.1 mile YMCA Turkey Trot 5K.  Sign-up anytime up to or before Saturday, October 7.

Group will meet on Tuesdays & Thursdays at 6 pm and Saturdays at 9:15 am at the covered bench by the paved path near the pickle ball courts. The plan is based on walk/run intervals designed to gradually increase the time and distance of the faster portion (it doesn’t have to be a run; it can be a faster walk). We’ll focus on setting small, achievable goals within the larger goal of completing the Turkey Trot 5k. We’ll work on body posture and good form, breathing techniques, stretching, and strengthening to achieve our best while minimizing injury risk. Kids 12+ can train without a parent/guardian. Kids 8-11 must participate with a parent/guardian. Led by Tonia Sunderman.    

Fee: $60 – includes Turkey Trot Registration.
