We Run Naples Spring 5k Newbie Running Plan

March 19 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00 am on Sunday, repeating until March 26, 2023

We Run Naples is excited to offer our 1st Sofa to 5k training program with a dedicated coach gearing you up for the Lipman 5K Run/Walk For Backpacks at Ava Maria on Saturday 4/1/2023. We built this program for first-time runners and walkers who have never completed a 5k, have had some time off from running, or have taken part in one event but want support completing a second.
-The sofa to 5k program is a running program designed for beginners with no prior running experience.
-It’s designed for novices to go from “couch potatoes” to running a 5k by the end of the program.
-This is 12 weeks long, meeting once a week on Sundays for Coach-led 1-hour workouts.
-We offer tips to see you through the program to complete it with success and move on to running a marathon if that’s your goal.
It’s achievable, it’s fun and by the end of it, you’ll have a bunch of new friends & be able to run that 5K distance!
Meet the Coach
Coach Brad Vaccaro has been training and educating athletes all over the country for almost twenty years about increasing speed and improving strength and power. He specializes in sport-specific training with a focus on injury prevention. He has worked with over 30,000 athletes with phenomenal success and NO injuries. He has also been coaching track all over Bergen County NJ for 2 decades.
His athletic highlights include State Group Meet Medalist in Javelin, High jump, and the open 400 meters, and was a conference medalist in college for William Patterson College. He also was the team captain of one of the best teams in Bergen county history, Saddle Brook’s 1991 team which is still the only team in Bergen County history that has ever won the State Group title in both the individual meet and relay meet. He learned many of his techniques from Howard Schuman, who is probably the best coach in state history and is still coaching at age 78, and coached SBHS for 40 years and Holy Angels HS for the last 15.
