Race Information

The Annual 5K Run/Walk for Suicide Prevention is Samaritans’ largest annual event. More than 2,500 runners, walkers, volunteers, and spectators gather together in celebration of life. The 5K provides an important sense of community for suicide loss survivors and creates a space to remember loved ones lost to suicide. You can be a part of this incredible day. All proceeds help fund Samaritans’ life saving services, including their 24/7 helpline, suicide prevention workshops, and grief support services for those who have lost a loved one to suicide.

Beginner Runner Training Plans

Are you looking to become a runner for the first time? Coming back to running after a hiatus? Our friends at None to Run have created a gradual training plan for beginner runners!

In 3 workouts of 30 minutes or less per week, None to Run will take you from ground zero to running comfortably for 25 minutes straight.

None to Run is different from most beginner plans:

  • Focuses on running time. NOT distance or pace.
  • Includes simple strength and mobility workouts. No equipment required.
  • Progresses slowly to decrease the chances of getting injured.

If you can't currently run for more than 5-minutes straight without stopping to catch your breath, you're in the right place.

Thousands of people have already used the None to Run plan to finally become the runner they’ve always wanted to be.

Become a runner in 12 weeks with the None to Run app. Try it for free today!
