Beginners running club – Couch to 5k

Taking up running can seem like a daunting project especially if you have never run before, feel out of shape or unfit. Our beginner programme is designed to get just about anyone off the couch and gradually working up to running 5km (or for half an hour), in just nine weeks. It is designed for absolute beginners using a mixture of walking and jogging to gradually build up your fitness and stamina.

If you’d like to take part, please get in touch. We start on Wednesday 18th January at 12.30pm and will meet each week at the same time for the duration of the programme.

Once you have graduated, there are groups that meet weekly to run 5km at a beginners pace, so you can keep up your new healthy habit!
