Welcome to our running group
About our group
This is a 6 week running course aimed at those who want to get from 5k to 10k in a relaxed and easy going environment.
The course is suitable for the following: High body mass index, post natal and breastfeeding Mums or returning to running as part of injury recovery and novice runners.
We will do a mix of running at varying speeds and terrain, the run distance increases over the weeks. We run as fast as someone who is walking a fast pace. This makes the distance achievable for everyone. After the 6 weeks, we will celebrate with a 10k event locally.
The cost of the course is £15 per person for the whole 6 weeks, equivalent to £2.50 per session.
You will need the following equipment before you start, or at least by week 4: running shoes fitted by a sports specialist, good sports bra, comfortable layers to take off as you get warm. Please save your pennies, you don't need much to start but the shoes are a must.
We meet at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm depart, we'll be finished by 8.30pm.
You need to commit to attending at least 5/6 of the sessions plus at least two homework runs each week. I will help you with this.
I have lead this course for 4 years, I always enjoy every one of them. We have lots of fun, nobody is left behind and we all support eachother. Running is tough no matter if you have been doing it for years or one day! Any questions then please drop me an email or give a call. I look forward to hearing from you.
