Sabattus Rec plans Couch To 5K program

The Sabattus Rec Club is planning a Couch To 5k walking/running program this spring, beginning April 17 and lasting eight weeks. The Couch To 5K (C25K) program will be held at Oak Hill Middle School on Ball Park Road in Sabattus on Thursday nights, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

There will hopefully also be Wednesday Night “Group Runs/workouts.”

The C25K program is a popular exercise/running course designed to ease people off their couches and into a cardio exercise regimen that will help them build up endurance to complete a 5k race. Participants of all abilities will receive exercise tips, running and training suggestions, and helpful nutrition suggestions.

The course is open to residents of Sabattus and surrounding towns, and participants must be 12 years and older. Those under 18 will need parental permission.

There will be a $10 registration fee. For more information, email [email protected], check out the Sabattus Rec Club Running Program page on Facebook or go to and click on the running tab.
