Welcome to our running group

About our group

As part of Buxton Athletic Club, our Target 5K group embraces England Athletics' Run Together initiative to provide fun, friendly, supportive and inclusive running opportunitues for everyone.

We meet each Monday and Wednesday evening and alternate between two different levels throughout the year: 'Get Me Started' is aimed at complete beginners or those who haven't run for quite some time and follows a structured nine week plan to help people make the transition from non runner to taking part in and completing our local 5K race at the end of the plan. 

When we're not running the beginners sessions, our 'Keep Me Going' sessions will help those who have progressed from the beginners group to gradually increase their running time and distance up to 10K, at the end of which many of our runners will go onto become members of and run regularly with Buxton Athletic Club. 

Why not come and join our Run Together group? All our sessions are completely free of charge and our friendly, supportive group leaders will encourage you every step of the way to help make you feel so much fitter, happier and healthier!
