North Boroughs YMCA


Registration is still open! Sign up and join at any point in the training.

Nine-week training for the YMCA’s annual 5K race in July and for running in general. The program is designed for beginners, for people who have taken a hiatus from running, and for anyone else who wants to train with a coach and fellow-runners. The coach will use the walk/run method of preparing for a race and will emphasize fitness, safety, and enjoyment rather than speed. All registrants will be given an 8-week YMCA membership. If you are an existing YMCA member, enter “YMCA” in the coupon code field for a discount.

Coach Roger Powell, a Bellevue resident, has been running since 1991 and has run in marathons, half-marathons, 10Ks and 5K events. He is a “middle of the pack” runner who runs for fitness and fun.
