YMCA looking for couch potatoes for C25K program


FORT MADISON – The C25K program is a beginners training program that has helped thousands of new runners to get up off their couch and onto the pavement; running three miles in just two months! This is a coach led training program that will prepare new runners for the annual Rodeo Stampede 5k, comprised of group and individual workouts over an 8-week period. It is specifically designed to teach and motivate participants to follow a weekly training plan. In addition, the group will meet for support and encouragement throughout the program.

The first session will begin Thursday, July 18th at 6:00 p.m. at Lion’s Shelter House just north of Rodeo Arena following the initial group meeting. We also encourage participants to download the C25K App and will go over that more the first night.

Cost is $25 per participant. All participants will receive free access to the Fort Madison Family YMCA facility during the 8-week program, plus free entry into the Rodeo Stampede 5k.

The Y is also seeking individuals to help lead the C25K Program. Leaders will help organize a group of participants with (C25K application structured) stretching, warm-ups, and workouts once or twice a week over the 8-week program. Leaders receive free admission to the program.

For more information or to volunteer as a leader contact Noah Dean or Ryan Wilson at 319-372-2403 or email noah.dean@fortmadisony.org.
