Many speciality running stores have affiliated running clubs or groups for runners at all levels. Check with the stores in your local area. Also check with your YMCA; they will probably know about local running groups.
By the way, running 5K's at age 71 is fantastic! I'm 53 and hope to be running 5K's at 70+

Let me first say; How awesome you are for your accomplishments!! I am a newbie, too. I am training for my first 5k. I live near Brooksville/Spring Hill so, not close enough to train together. I wish you luck on your journey.
God Bless !!
