Take over the streets of Waterbury with us and Join the Y Running Program!






Beginner Running Program

Members $55 / Non-Members $75


Join our Beginner Running Program and safely work your way up to a 5k in 10 weeks. The program will start off Week 1 solely walking, and each week we will add longer jogging intervals. The new friends you meet in the program will hold you accountable to the weekly runs! By race day, you will feel confident and ready to complete a 5K road race at your own pace, injury free. All ages are welcome.
