The Fort Madison Family YMCA is proud to offer the Couch to 5k fitness program leading up to our Annual Rodeo Stampede 5k Run!

If you’re someone who has never ran a day or if you used to be an avid runner this program is for you!

The Fort Madison Family YMCA’s C25K Program is a beginners training program for all ages that has helped thousands of new runners to get up off their couch and into a healthy lifestyle; running three miles in just eight weeks in our Annual Rodeo Stampede 5k!

The C25k Program is led by our very own YMCA Personal Trainer, Dana Zumdome, who will teach and motivate participants to follow a weekly training program. In addition to the training program, the group will meet for support and encouragement! All participants will receive free access to the Fort Madison Family YMCA’s main facility during the program, free entry into the Rodeo Stampede 5k (which includes access to all Pre-Rodeo Events and Pancake Breakfast), and a free Rodeo Stampede t-shirt.

Challenge yourself with a new goal, and be a part of a supportive group! Meet new people and run races together!

  • Proper Footwear
