Runners complete ‘Couch to 5K’ challenge in Limavady

Tue, November 27, 2018

Participants of a running challenge in Limavady have celebrated the completion of their first 5K event.

The Fun Run was held in Roe Valley Country Park on Sunday 25th November.

68 runners took part after finishing the ‘Couch to 5K’ challenge hosted by Northern Velocity & Causeway Coast and Glens’ Borough Council.

The run marked a hugely successful end to the initiative which saw participants cross the finish line after an 11-week training programme.

It was a fantastic event which was very well supported by the runners, their families and the wider community.

The Fun Run had a total of 175 entrees on the day from first time event runners to elite runners, all supporting each other to complete their personal goals.

The ‘Couch to 5K’ programme is open to anyone and is aimed at complete beginners with expert coaching on hand to guide participants through to the end goal of completing a 5K run.

The next ‘Couch to 5K’ programme is due to begin in February 2019.
