Beginners Courses

The next New to Running/ Beginners Course will start on Wednesday 17th October 2018 for an eight week period.

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 £15.00 for the course payable on week two.

Week one will be an introduction, administration and assessment.
