In 2020, and in response to COVID-19 quarantine, Sullivan 180 launched Coach to 5K Virtual Walk/Run, which is a virtual training program open to all Sullivan County residents. Sullivan 180’s Coach to 5K program provided all participants with their very own coach and an 8-week 5K training plan for both runners and walkers. All were welcomed to participate, whether they were a beginner, veteran runner or a family that would like to walk their first 5K together – this event is for everyone.
After the 8-week training period ended, participants had a full week to complete their 5K and share their achievements with us on social media. During the weeks leading up to race week, Sullivan 180, coaches, teams and participants also helped with fundraising and one hundred percent of the funds raised, both registration fees and additional donations, were given to Sullivan Allies Leading Together (SALT) to help support their efforts in feeding Sullivan County families in need.
