Beginners Courses

Our next course starts on Tuesday 13th September 2022.

The aim of the 10 week course is to introduce newcomers to running to gradually build up from a mixture of walking and running, until each participant can run approximately 5k/3m at any pace.

We roughly follow a “Couch to 5K” approach, as promoted by the NHS.

The course is led by England Athletics qualified and experienced coaches and run leaders, and we promote an encouraging and friendly atmosphere.

It will be each Tuesday evening, meeting at 6.20pm for a 6.30pm start, at King Edward’s Leisure Centre, Kings Hill Road, Lichfield.

Cost is £20 for the course, payable on week two.
