Who is it for? : anyone that fancies learning how to run 5k! Aimed at complete beginners, but more experienced runners welcome to come along as 'helpers' too.
What do I get? : run leaders that will motivate and encourage you, that will meet with you three times per week and run with you, at your pace. A progressive 8 week programme that builds slowly to 5k. Online support including weekly emails and a closed Facebook group. Access to our experienced team of run coaches, leaders, personal trainers and sports therapists for any advice you might need on running safely or preventing injury. And most of all, you get a whole load of new friends, a new running community, and a great new hobby.
What if I can't come along three times per week? : No problem, you can do some of the sessions in your own time if you prefer. But generally, people find it loads easier to run with the group, so do try and come along as much as possible.
Will I be too slow/too fat/too unfit? : Nope. It's genuinely open to all, and for complete beginners. You'll find a real mix of ages, sizes and experience. People that have been on previous programmes tell us that it's nowhere near as scary as you expect it to be :) And, the answer to my most asked question, no, no-one ever gets left behind.
Do I need any special kit? : If you've got something visible to wear that would be great, and lights if you have them would be good too. As you get towards the middle of the programme we'd encourage you to be properly fitted for some trainers to prevent injury. And ladies, please make sure you have a good, supportive bra!!
When are the sessions? : We meet every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6:30pm.
Where? : We'll meet in the Petpaks car park (just so it's easy for people to park) for week one.
How much does it cost? : Nothing. Yes, that's right, it's completely FREE. No catch :)
Sound good? See you on the 15th then! Please let us know to expect you via email, or Facebook.
