Sawtry Walk To Run 'Run Together' offers FREE beginners programmes three tmes a year in January, April & September. On graduation people can join our England Athletics Affiliated Club for which the membership is £20 per year. The Group & Club meet together every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
The next beginners programme starts on 30 September 2018.
We use the 12 week None To Run programme which gets people running for 25 continuous minutes from just 30 second segments.
On graduation, runners can follow a 3 to 5k programme to consolidate their 5k performance or move straight onto our 5 to 10k programme. Our previous graduates are now regularly running 5k, 10k and for some, Half Marathons and beyond. Over 100 people have completed our last 3 beginners programmes - if you can walk, you can run!
The Club currently has 3 groups training for the Peterborough Half Marathon (target times from 1hr 30 - 3 hours) and will be offering a 10K Improvers group from Sunday 21 October in addtion to their normal social runs which are for all levels of runners. There will also be random trail runs over the winter.
All Run Together & Club sessions run from St Judiths in Sawtry at 8.30am (9.30 from 30 September) on a Sunday morning and from the car park of the Greystones at 7.15pm on a Tuesday and Thursday.
