First Christian Church in Garden City will act as host for a "Run For God" 5K Challenge beginning Sunday. This is a 12-week Bible study and fitness program focusing on building endurance as a runner and developing enduring faith as well.

The instructor will be Ellen Mangan. Plans are to meet at 4 p.m. each Sunday at the church, 306 N. Seventh St.

"Run For God" is a program developed by Mitchell Hollis of Dalton, Ga., in 2010. It started out as a local program and now has more than 1,000 instructors in several countries, sponsoring 5K, 10K and half-marathon races across the nation. The organization states its primary goal is to "spread the good news of Jesus Christ and to educate about the parallels of faith and endurance."

The cost to join the group is $20 to cover study materials, with a price break offered for families.

The program is designed for the absolute beginning runner but all fitness levels and all ages are encouraged to join.
