Beginners Courses

The aim of the 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 Wednesday evening, meeting at Saxon Hill School at 6.20pm for a 6.30pm start

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

Week one will be a presentation and introduction to the course,  including information from health care specialists and possibly a nutritionist.

Please keep an eye on the website and our Facebook page for further details of the new course.

Keep up to date with chat on training, racing, and social activity through looking at discussions on Facebook and please join our Beginners Facebook Group as well.
