Start training for the Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Fun Run with Couch to 5K workouts! This course is offered free with the only requirement being registration for any event (1.5 mile walk or 5K) in the OMC Hollywood Hustle Fun Run that will be held on Saturday, April 28. “With the popularity of 5Ks, this is a great way to get beginners ready to participate in a 5K or the 1.5 mile Fun Run event,” said Christina Hardman, Wellness Coordinator at OMC.

At the end of the 8-week Couch to 5K program, participants will be ready for the Fun Run. Couch to 5K participants will receive a free “Couch to 5K” t-shirt in addition to their Fun Run t-shirt.

The workout schedule is Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. beginning Thursday, March 1 at Carmichael Track. In case of inclement weather, workouts will be held inside the West Plains Civic Center on the walking track. The Couch to 5K phone app can be downloaded to use for workouts on your own or when you are unable to attend group workouts.

Fun Run Registration Forms are available at OMC Public Relations, located at No. 23 Parkway Center.

The 28th Annual OMC Fun Run is a fundraising event for the OMC Cancer Treatment Center Emergency Fund. This fund helps patients that need assistance in getting to their treatments.
