Our latest 'pop up' running group is due to start next week, on Monday 30th June at 6:30pm, meeting on Cottenham Village Green for **eight weeks only** (don't miss it!)
This group is for complete beginners with no prior running experience. We meet three times per week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 6:30pm) and take you through a graduated programme to ensure you can run 5k in just eight weeks (you can do some of these as 'homework' in your own time if you prefer). The programme is delivered by qualified run leaders, who are all trained, CRB checked and insured by UK Athletics. You'll also receive weekly emails and online support from our experienced running coach and personal trainer, Clare, who can answer any questions about kit, injury, stretching, fitness and so on too.
This programme has a great track record, with over 200 people now successfully completing the course and achieving that 5k. We also won the Pride of Cambridge awards last year for the Community Group of the Year, which is a great reward for all the hard work put in by our volunteer leaders.
The programme is completely 100% FREE, inclusive and great fun - so what are you waiting for?
As part of the programme you also get temporary membership to the Fen Edge Runners club, so you can see what they get up to and meet some of the members (some of whom started with our last beginners group!). You can also mix and match with the beginners sessions at Wimpole on Mondays and Thursdays at 10am if that's more convenient?
Come out and make the most of the summer evenings and explore the village! Get fitter, make new friends and find a great new sport.
Kids, buggies and dogs very welcome (although please let us know they're coming so we can adapt the route if need be!).
Any questions, please email or ask on Facebook? Please tell friends - let's get Cottenham running!
