The couch to 5k programme is an 8-week programme that is looking to encourage and motivate people to take them from the ‘Couch’ to 5km in 8 weeks.
The programme will cater for people that are new or beginners to jogging or running and is also open to those that are currently walking but perhaps would like to build up to jogging/running.
If you are looking to get fit and healthy in a fun and supported way then this is for you!
Organised by the Cork Sports Partnership with the support of local organisations, participants will work with a qualified and professional coach once a week for the 8 weeks while also being encouraged to do extra themselves throughout.
Participants will also receive workshops/extra sessions where possible during the weeks on various topics (gear, warming up/cooling down etc) that will encourage and motivate them on their journey towards completing perhaps their first 5km jog/run.
