About our group

HLB Runners - Couch 2 5K

This is designed to be a gentle introduction to getting the body moving, starting off alternating between walking and running small distances, and slowly building up until after 10 weeks, you're ready to run 5 kilometers or 30 - 35 minutes non stop.

HLB Runners - Step up Group/mixed paced 5K (some hills!)

This session is for those graduating from the C25K or runners capable of completing a 5k in around 35-40mins, we run from the Brache through the village and around the 'Water End Loop' with the infamous 'Badger Hill' thrown in for good measure.

HLBRunners - Jeffing session

This session is for those people graduating from the C25K, people returning to running after an injury or those runners capable of completing a 5k but wanting to do it at an easier pace or combining it with the step up session to run for a greater distance. We 'Jeff' Run/walk at a ratio of 60:30

HLB Active -  Fitness Football Fun

Come and join HLB Active and join  our new summer club which is aimed at 11-15 year olds who want to have fun whilst getting active.  This new club will be run by England Athletics LiRF Run Leaders and FA Coach, the sessions will include a warm up, games, drills & skills to improve balance, coordination and speed followed by a cool down. 
£15.00 for 6 weeks or £3.00 per session.
