About our group



The Autumn course bookings are now open. Start date Saturday 7th September 2019. Please go  the Runs tab at the top to book.

If have aready done a C25k,  our Club runs from 5k upwards on Tuesday evenings may suit you. Please have a look at our Athletic Club website; www.lewesac.co.uk for info on what we do. Check out our feedback on the page above.

We are part of  Lewes Athletic Club and we are UK Athletics qualified Coaches & Leaders with the Club. We run regularly all year round and take part in various events and races around the County -so we know running!

Our Beginners course is suitable for complete novices, and returning runners. We will get you from walking to running for a continuous 30 minutes/5k. So if you are thinking of learning to run, or coming back after injury or a long break, then do join us. Our beginners courses are open to all, but please note that we can only take runners over the age of 16 years.

We created the course because we know that starting out is a bit daunting and the difficult first step is getting out of the door! So our aim is to get you running in an enjoyable and informal environment with like minded people -  using the great outdoors as a backdrop to our sessions. The emphasis is on having some fun while getting more active.

Our course runs for 10 weeks plus a parkrun at the end. We meet Saturday mornings at 9.25am and sessions run for around 1 hour. All sessions take place in mainly traffic free areas using Lewes green spaces near to town centre, and there’s free parking available nearby. Each session is led by an experienced Coach and you are also supported via regular emails.  

The cost is £40 (payable in advance online before you start) and on graduating  we offer a free  transition programme to help increase your distance  to around 5 miles and integrate you into our club groups if you want to join the athletic club. Plus  you get a discounted membership fee when you join.  After that, who knows? Some of our beginner graduates have gone onto complete races at all distances including marathons!
