Kenmare AC is starting a 'Couch to 5k' program from Monday January 14th for 8 weeks. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 8pm. Venue: Super Valu underground car park (it will be closed to the public and best of all its dry). Our group 5k run is scheduled for Sunday March 11th.
The sessions are guided and comprise of stretching, warmup walk, walk-run intervals (which gradually increase each session), cool down walk and final stretching. There will be a helpful handout provided at the beginning of each week.
The most important thing to know about this program is that 'everybody goes at their own pace'.
The total cost is €40 for the 24 sessions. This covers insurance and a donation to the new 60m training track which Kenmare AC are currently fundraising for. €20 will be required on registration and €20 at the beginning of week 3.
Here are the registration options: Friday January 11th 2.30pm - 4.30pm or 6pm to 7pm at Kenmare Shopping Centre or on the first night January 14th from 7pm to 7.30pm.
