C25K® is the easiest program to get beginners from couch potatoes to 5K distance runners in 8 weeks.
The proven C25K program was designed for inexperienced runners who are just beginning. The plan's structure prevents new runners from giving up and challenges them to continue moving forward. C25K works because it starts with a mix of running and walking, gradually building up strength and stamina.

Ratings and Reviews
Voice commands could be louder
I’ve returned to this app after a long break and it’s excellent for getting a slug like me moving. The incremental build up of endurance is excellent and it doesn’t shout commands at you all the time. That, in fact, is it’s only drawback. I listen to comedy podcasts via a podcast app and have this on in the background, yet I sometimes can’t hear the prompts clearly enough. I never used to have this problem, so either I’ve changed or the app has. I would still highly recommend it, however
Pretty great but can’t hear the commands well
I like this app most out of a few I’ve tried because it’s simple and straightforward. My only problem is I sometimes don’t hear the beeps and the start/stop running notifications if I’m listening to a podcast or something while running. I’ve noticed when I have the app open (ie my phone is in my hand and I’m in the app) then the commands are at the same volume as whatever else I’m listening to and I can hear them without a problem, but if I have my phone locked and in my pocket while running they’re much fainter and I often miss them so end up just guessing when to start/stop running or I have to stop and check which is a bit inconvenient. Would be great if the commands played at the same volume as music/podcasts! I wouldn’t mind missing a few seconds of whatever I’m listening to for the commands to be heard.
Great app for the beginner runner
I wanted to run 5k and before I started I couldn’t run for the bus. I finished the program. My wife joined me. Now we run for 45minutes together 3 tines a week.
Great app. Needs a little work to integrate better with the iPhone features. Has trouble alerting you when to switch modes between walking and running so you need to have the phone unlocked and app running all the time on the foreground. Maybe add a lock screen feature?
