Have you ever envied "runners", or wanted to participate in a 5k but didn't know where to start? If so, the Westerly Library Couch to 5k Run Club is the place for you! Join our Facebook group HERE for updates. The group will meet in Wilcox Park at the fountain every Wednesday for a socially-distanced group run. Participants should come dressed in comfortable clothing, sneakers, a mask (only required if passing others within 6 feet), and water.
Walkers are also welcome!

Our brand new running group is designed to help almost anyone go from a "non runner" to a "5k distance runner" in 9 weeks, following the C25k® program!
The C25k® program is designed for beginners, easing you into running for progressively longer distances, until you are able to run for 30 minutes straight (or approximately 3 miles).
It's race season, and this 9 week program will end just in time for you to run in your very first 5k! Check out the races through the Westerly Track and Athletic Club for details.
