The Course is run over 8 weeks and led by trained UK Athletics Run Leaders
Since the club started in June 2007 we have always encouraged new runners to join the club. We have run several successful Beginners programmes which aim to have complete beginners running 5K in 8 weeks.
Many of the beginners who have completed the programme have gone on to compete in organised races ranging in distances from 5K to 13.1 miles! It does work and is an excellent way to feel fitter and healthier in just 8 weeks (and meet like-minded people!).
The programme is aimed at complete beginners but we can adapt it depending on peoples' individual fitness and previous running experience.
