Kick off meeting: Friday, June 9, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. inside of AGH’s Jenner Building (545 Jenner Dr., Allegan), which is the white building on the AGH campus located across the street from Rite Aid.

The Strides for Health 5K training program is a great way to train for our 5K on Saturday, August 19! We welcome all levels of runners and walkers.

Throughout the 10 week program, participants will be given the opportunity to attend informational meetings on proper footwear, nutrition, strength and conditioning for both runners and walkers. A group run and walk will also take place each week beginning Wednesday, June 16 at 6 p.m. to help encourage and motivate participants during the program.

Additionally, a training schedule will be provided to each participant. The schedule includes information on the type of training and amount of time a participant should spend each day (whether they are walking or running) training for the 5K.

The cost of the program is $10. Participants who take part in 70% of the group walk/runs and complete the Strides for Health 5K will be receiving their $10 back on race day. The weekly group meets will take place at the Allegan General Hospital Physical Rehabilitation Center.
