My First 5K

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

My 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 fourth year in a row for this year’s training program. 

Join us to prepare to walk 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.

Thank you to our trainers, participants, and OhioHealth for making My First 5k 2019 so successful!

Stay tuned for information on My First 5k 2020.

Race for a Reason will return in April 2020. We will provide more info during the training on how you can choose Live Healthy Appalachia as your reason!

Trainer Opportunities:
