2016 Couch to Firecracker 5K Run/Walk

The Pleasantville Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with the Pleasantville High School Cross-Country Team and KNX Fitness & Training in Knoxville, is offering a 10-week Couch-to-Firecracker 5k course to promote community building, a more fit you, and a chance to run the Pleasantville Firecracker 5k in July. Wouldn’t it be great to find camaraderie in the community, while being more active, and even achieving the goal of running in the Pleasantville Firecracker 5k on July 2nd, 2016. 

The Couch to 5k Training Program is designed to help train anyone who has ever wanted to try to run a 5k (3.1 mile) road race. The training is designed to get you to the point where you can run 30-45 minutes (a 5K distance - 3 miles) at a comfortable, relaxed pace. It's a simple, progressive program that begins with more walking than running, and gradually evolves into more running than walking.

Meet us at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, April 25, 2016 at the High School track in Pleasantville or at KNX Fitness & Training in downtown Knoxville. To sign-up, meet us at one of the two locations on Monday and bring the completed registration form that you can download here and your $30 registration fee.

For more information contact, Don Dursky by e-mail at Director@PleasantvilleChamber.org or by phone/text at (515) 975-2052.
