Couch to 5K

If you are new to running or you are looking for something to help with your recovery, replace bad habits for healthy ones, or just to get out and enjoy the fresh air, we want to help. Join the  Running2Bwell Running Group at their group runs to get you on track on Mondays at Second Sole in Akron (down in the valley) at 6:30pm (or any of their group runs in Kent, Medina or Wadsworth). For the latest updates on group runs, please follow Running2bWell on Facebook. 

Watch for posted times and places to meet for group runs on Running2bWell's Facebook page. If you are interested in doing a couch to 5k plan or you just want to meet new friends to run with, Running2bWell welcomes you! 

Here's a sample 8 week training plan to get you started toward our finish line! (PDF)

Each year, over 26,000 Summit County residents and their families face the challenge of recovery from mental illness and addictions and turn to the ADM Board for treatment and support. The continuum of care runs throughout the lifespan – from services and programs for toddlers to older adults. It includes preventative and treatment services, housing support, employment assistance, respite, peer support, recreation, and educational services.

We are committed to meeting these needs in our community, but we cannot meet the challenge alone. Your generous sponsorship and participation benefits the Summit County ADM Support Committee, Inc. in its future levy campaign activities on behalf of the County of Summit Alcohol, Drug Addiction & Mental Health Services (ADM) Board.
