: 10 weeks, graduation runs at local parkruns. All graduates receive a free Chew Valley Snails neck warmer buff. Cost £35 for 10 weeks - includes your first year's membership of Chew Valley Snails.

Improvers courses: for those working on technique and / or distance up to 10k; available to any graduates of the C25k or confident 5k+ runners. Sometimes scheduled to coincide with particular local 10k runs. Fixed cost for the course

Social runs are what they say on the tin: a friendly run on a variety of terrains over varying distances. Suitable to any C25k graduates or those confident at running 5k. Local runs on- and off-road exploring local routes and getting some distance under our belts. Lots of looping-back by the faster runners, lots of stops, so no-one will be left behind.  Dates, locations and distances are different each time to look through the list to see what suits you. Free to members, £3 for non-members*.  Note that many of our routes are not suitable for dogs - please always check in advance with the run leader to see if you may bring your dog.

*Non-members may attend up to three sessions with Chew Valley Snails, but must join to continue, for insurance purposes. Annual membership of Chew Valley Snails is £10 (1st April to 31st March).

Refund policy: Refunds for courses can only to be made in the event of an illness, injury or change of circumstances which prevents the continuation of the course by a member. All refunds will be made via bank transfer.
