Information for Beginners

IMG_4613.JPG

Taking up running can seem like a scary thought, especially if the last time you popped on a pair of trainers was when you were at school.

 

But did you know that regular running can help reduce the risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke, boost your mood and keep your weight under control?

 

Several times a year we run a specific beginner's programme to help new and less confident runners get started. Our Get Up and Run course was created by our experienced England Athletics qualified coach Georgina and is led by our Beginner's Rep Carolyn. It is designed to get you off the sofa and will gradually work you up to running a 5K park run or local race. We end the course with a graduation event at one of the local parkruns.

Each course is just 8 weeks long and costs just £25 which includes club membership.
