Hennepin Healthcare's Couch to 5K Training Program

Welcome, we are so glad you're here! Starting a new exercise routine can seem daunting so, in honor of Charlene's 5K Dog Run, an event supporting the Brain Injury Research Lab at HCMC, we have teamed up with Hennepin Healthcare's own Natalie Ikeman, MPAS, PA-C to create a Couch to 5K training program.

Charlene's 5K Dog Run is an untimed and supportive way to start your running or walking routine with or without your favorite four-legged companion. Whether or not you run the whole time, you got outside and got yourself moving.

Need some encouragement? Watch or create your own Couch to 5K challenge video!

Steve Barron, husband of Charlene, challenges you to the Couch to 5K!
