Have you always wanted to run a 5K, but weren’t sure how to train for it?
Join Campus Wellness’ Gamecocks on the Move (GOTM) program—a free USC faculty, staff and student walking and running program that provides individuals with the resources and support to train for a 5K. This program is not a running club but an individualized, self-paced program to help prepare you mentally and physically for a 5K
Each fall and spring semester, GOTM will participate in multiple 5K races. While there are no fees associated with GOTM, the races typically require registration fees.
Each fall and spring semester, GOTM will participate in at least one 5K race. While there are no fees associated with GOTM, the races typically require registration fees.
During the Spring of 2014, GOTM will train for the April 26, 2014, Changing Carolina Peer Leaders (CCPL) 5K on campus.
GOTM will run/walk as a team during this race to promote physical activity and wellness.
Training for the 5K event will start on March 24, 2014 (5 weeks before the CCPL 5K on April 26th). Registration for the Spring 2014 training session will begin in February 2014.
GOTM participants can request a one on one coaching session with a Campus Wellness employee. Information about nutrition, proper footwear and injury prevention will be provided throughout the training period via email and through our NEW GOTM Facebook group for participants.
