Welcome to our running group
Next run: Thursday 20 December 2018
About our group
Sawtry Walk To Run 'Run Together' offers FREE beginners programmes twice a year, one starting in March and one in 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.
Only the Run Together sessions are listed on here. In addition, the Club offers a variety of sessions every Runday. Currently this includes Folksworth 15 training, a 10k Improvers programme and a social run. Spring Marathon training starts in the New Year.
Our latest beginners programme started 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!
NEW! From December, we will be offering a walking group on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month. This primarily is to prepare people for the 26 mile London Moonwalk in May 2019 but is open to anyone who wants to join us. You may simply love walking, just want to get out in the fresh air, be carrying an injury meaning you can’t run or maybe you want to think about joining our beginners programme but want to get a bit more walking under your belt first. Whatever your reason, come along!
All Run Together & Club sessions start from St Judiths in Sawtry at 9.30am (8.30 in the summer) on a Sunday morning and from the car park of the Greystones at 7.15pm on a Tuesday and Thursday evening.
