Welcome to our running group
About our group
Calling all parents and carers at Allerton CE Primary School!
Fancy getting fit for free?
You don't need to be fit or know how to run - all you need to do is turn up and join in the fun!
We will be meeting at school after the 'morning drop off', taking it slowly and building up your running fitness together.
Who is it suitable for?
Couch to 5K is for people new to running, people who want to get back into running, or people who want to be more active.
Where do we meet?
At Allerton C of E Primary School
Do I need to run on other days too?
It is entirely up to you! You can run with us once a week. If you want to reach 5k quicker, then download the FREE "One You Couch to 5K" App from the App Store and Google Play. How does it work? The App is produced with the BBC, and builds you up gradually with a mix of running and walking. It features a choice of celebrity trainers who tell you when to run and when to walk. It displays a countdown timer so you can see how long you've got left of each run. You can track your progress over the nine week programme and rate your runs. The app gives tips and advice for new runners too.
