COUCH TO 5K PROGRAM

Need a push? Our Couch to 5K team is here to help!

Details for the 2022 Couch to 5K training program will be announced this fall.

An important tradition of the Feaster Five Road Race is the Couch to 5k training program, which helps motivate and prepare runners and walkers for race day. Details for the 2022 Couch to 5K training program will be announced this fall. All Feaster Five participants are invited to join the local running community for this fun opportunity to train and share in the traditions of the Feaster Five.

YOUR COACHING TEAM

Maura Szendey and Steve Seide are the coaches for the Couch to 5K program. Collectively they have over 50 years of running experience.  They've run all race distances and love sharing their tips and strategies for getting ready for Feaster Five - either as a beginner or a seasoned runner.

HOW IT WORKS

We meet the eight Sundays prior to the Feaster Five at the race start; we break into groups (walkers, walk/runners, runners) to make sure everyone has the right support; we start with group warm ups and running tips each week; we progress each week to further distances and more running than walking. If you plan on joining us you will be required to sign a waiver. We will have them on hand.

The 2022 Feaster Five Road Race is the largest Thanksgiving Day road race in Massachusetts. Since 1988, the Feaster Five has drawn tens of thousands of participants annually who take part in the 5k or 5 miler walk/run. This race brings together the community and beyond for a fun filled morning of running miles and consuming plenty of pie. It is a longstanding tradition of many families to participate in the race each year.

The Feaster Five Road Race is hosted by the Merrimack Valley Striders, a 400+ member running organization founded in 1979. Proceeds from the race benefit the Striders’ high school scholarship fund, local charities, and initiatives in the surrounding communities.
