The 9-week training plan for the I Can 5K program is designed to get you to the point where you can run 5K (3.1 miles) at a slow, relaxed pace. It's a simple, progressive program that begins with more walking than running, and gradually evolves into more running than walking.

Participants will train up to 3 times a week with coaches from Oxford's running club, Run Oxford. Sessions meet at Coach Howell Activity Center (396 Price St)  on  Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays  at 5:30pm-6:15pm, and at Pat Lamar Park at the same times after the time changes.
