Whether you have a community of runners, wanna-be runners, walkers, or couch potatoes, organizing a group to do a 5K can bring people together. After all, misery (I mean) sweat loves company, right?

This event can stand alone or you can pair it with our Running Club and the New Year's Weight Loss Competition.

Know that for some of your residents, this will be the first race they ever participate in, so be patient with them, answer their questions, and encourage them to get outside their normal comfort zone. After the event, feel free to invite everyone to celebrate with a big breakfast at a local restaurant.

There are 5K training schedules, tips, and music playlists at our Misc. Adult Events Pinterest page.
