With the New Year well under way, many people are working on their New Year resolutions. Well if one of your resolutions is to get ready to run a 5K or if it is just something you want to do, then the Owensboro Parks and Recreation Department has just the thing!

They are now accepting registrations for their “Couch to 5K in 5 Weeks” program. The program will help those who are new to running or just want to gain knowledge. It will progressively and safely prepare participants to run a 3.1 mile race through a fun and supportive program.

Participants will get information on training methods, pacing, flexibility, speed development, strategy, and motivation. The program is for those ages 16 and older.

The registration deadline is January 31. For more information you can call the Owensboro Parks and Recreation Department at 687-8700 or you can click here.
