My First 5K

Train to run, jog, or walk your first 5K!

My First 5K is Live Healthy Appalachia’s free annual 5K training program for beginners. We are proud to partner with OhioHealth O’Bleness Hospital for the fifth year in a row! 

Join us to prepare to walk, jog or run a 5K in just 6 weeks. This training is geared especially toward first-time walkers and runners, but anyone looking for motivation and fun is welcome to participate! Training focuses on injury prevention, stretching, and setting and reaching goals.

Reduce stress, improve health, and increase your enjoyment of exercise while having fun and meeting new people.

In an effort to adhere to public health efforts to stop the transmission of COVID-19, all in-person My First 5K Training Sessions have been canceled. We do however want you to continue to stay active and work on your fitness goals! In that spirt, we will be sending weekly training guides to everyone who registered for the program so that you may complete the workouts independently.

Thank you to our community partners and sponsors!
