Has your favorite charity or cause ever held a 5k that you really wanted to run to support them, but you just weren’t in shape to do it? Whether it’s your first time running or you just need to knock the dust off your running shoes, Pearson Chiropractic has exactly what you need! Their six-week “Couch to 5k” training and coaching sessions will help prepare you for the 5k you’ve been wanting to run.
The goal of Pearson’s 5k clinic is to prepare participants for the annual Turkey Trot, held Thanksgiving morning in Lakeland Hills. This family-friendly event is held to support the Auburn Public Schools Foundation.
“We are aiming to bring runners from the Auburn, Bonney Lake and Sumner Area for a good time and a sense of community,” explained Dr. Gavan Graham. “We will be meeting a minimum of one time per week for six weeks, preferably 2 times per week. We will plan one evening and one morning run to reach as many folks as possible.”
The first Couch to 5k run is scheduled for October 17th at 6:30pm. Check out the Couch to 5k Facebook event for more details.
The Thanksgiving Turkey Trot will begin and end at Sunset Park and follow a nearly flat route through the heart of Lakeland Hills. Register here for the event. All proceeds help the Auburn Public Schools Foundation support students in the Auburn School District.
