2015 Couch to 5k – Spread the Word

Our Couch to 5K program is quickly approaching, and we need your help to make it a success!  So, please start encouraging friends, family members and co-workers to participate.

Talk it up in person, post the flier on FB, tweet it and feel free to post the flier at your workplace (if allowed), local gym, and anywhere else you think would be good. We are holding an information meeting on Monday, February 23rd at 6 p.m. at the Belleville Parks and Recreation Department at 510 W. Main Street. The Couch to 5K program begins March 2nd.
Thank you for helping spread the word, and please come out and help when the program begins. New runners truly appreciate the encouragement!See the Couch to 5k section on for more information.

P.S. There is a special gift in it for the BRC member who refers the most Couch to 5k participants. This lucky person will be given the opportunity to have the BRC logo’d item of their choice (limited to things we actually have)!

    I missed the Info meeting on 2/23/15 and first practice at East was cancelled 3/2 so I will bring my application and check on Monday 3/9 to Belleville East. I am looking forward to this. I am sure I have a lot of work ahead of me as I have not run before.

          We hold it every spring, so it will be early 2019.
