Join us for our inaugural Couch to 5k program!

Just starting running, or looking to get back into running? This may be your way to start!

Our Couch to 5K program is a 10 week program that will provide you with a training schedule and group runs that will meet on Tuesday evenings (at 6:30 p.m.) and Saturday mornings (at a time to be determined by the group), starting Tuesday, August 3, 2021.

We will have an introductory meeting at First Grace United Methodist Church, 3401 Canal St, New Orleans, LA 70119, on Tuesday, July 27, 2021, at 6:30 p.m.

Our training schedule eases you into completing at 5k (3.1 mile) running event. We’ll train using intervals that include both walking and running.

The plan was to train for the UNCF Walk/Run for Education that was tentatively scheduled for Saturday, October 9, 2021; however, the event was changed to a virtual only event on an earlier date.

Now, our goal will be to train for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation’s New Orleans Race for the Cure 5K, scheduled for October 23, 2021. More information can be found at

Of course, this event could be cancelled or switched to virtual only, depending on Covid restrictions at the time of the event.
