The Newbie Run Club is a Couch to 5k training plan with a dedicated coach gearing you up for the Hospital Hill 5k. This program is built for first-time runners and walkers who have never completed a 5k, or has had some time off from running, or has participated in one event but want support completing a second.


You are in for a treat with our amazing coaches! Come to our free informational meeting on March 18th and meet the coaches. There is a dedicated coach for the Northland (Coach Mary), Lee's Summit (Coach Katrina and Coach Gary) and Mission, Kansas (Coach Mike) locations. Through your 9-week training you will develop a close connection with your coach and fellow Run Club participants!


The only person out there to beat is you! And, with our charismatic coaches you will have fun completing this 5k and be ready to take on more! Plus, the Hospital Hill event is providing a TRWS area for us on race day so you can meet up with your coach and leave your belongings as you achieve an awesome goal!

Here are some important logistics:

Each Running Well Store location will be hosting a Couch to 5k training program gearing you up for your first 5k. Choose to join the Northland, Lee's Summit or Mission Newbie Run Club.

At 6pm on Wednesday, March 18th head to The Running Well Store in Mission, KS (6009 Johnson Drive) for the FREE Newbie Run Club informational meeting. This centralized informational meeting will include details about the run club in your area. In addition we will provide a 15 minute informational presentation on footwear, socks and have a free sock raffle. At the information meeting you and your Run Coaches will discuss running (or walking!), why you set the goal, any challenges you face and anything else relevant to your success. We encourage you to come and ask all the questions! You will not be training during the informational meetings as your training officially will start the week of April 1st.

During the 9-week training period there will be two weekly group runs per location

NORTHLAND : Thursdays at 6:30pm and Sunday mornings at 8am.

LEE’S SUMMIT: Wednesdays at 6:30pm and Sunday mornings at 7am

MISSION: Thursdays at 6:30pm and Sundays at 8am

We encourage you to come to both runs at your local TRWS location, but you can discuss with your coach what is best for you and your schedule. The clinic dates will be announced closer to the season.
