Looking to start running...? If the answer is yes, then this program is for you.
Starting soon at Appleton College/Bridgewater High School near Broomfields Leisure Centre, we will be running a (free) 8 week program ran by qualified run leaders, aimed at getting you up to a 5k distance.
If you are interested in finding out more, then please speak to one of our members at any Tuesday or Thursday evening session, or alternatively please join our Warrington Road Runners Beginners & Newbies Group on Facebook for more information.
Who is the course for
The Beginners' Course lasts 8 weeks and we welcome all abilities, from those at jogging / walking stage, up to more regular runners. By the end you should be able to run 5K continuously.
The course is based on 3 sessions per week where two sessions are supported by Run Leaders, on Tuesdays & Thursdays, and the third session is done independently (with advice to maintain the course programme).
Where is it based
Sessions will start and finish at Appleton College/Bridgewater High School near Broomfields Leisure Centre on a Tuesday and at Victoria Park on a Thursday. We will work slowly with you, building up your confidence, endurance and strength in what we hope you find an enjoyable way.
