Start to Run

Have you thought about running but find it a bit of a struggle starting on your own? Would you like to have the support and encouragement of a qualified running coach and run with people who are getting started just like you?

My Start to Run courses take you from the couch to running 5k in 8 weeks. They are friendly and social groups for beginner runners. Whether you ran at school but not as an adult, have had a break from fitness after having children, or have never ran in your life, then these courses are for you.

We start off with just 1 minute of running at a time and we always run together as a group. Throughout the 8 weeks of the start to run course I will give you tips to help you get into the running habit and enjoy yourself. At the end of the 8 weeks there will be a group run at a local parkrun, a very friendly free 5k run which takes place every Saturday morning, or another local 5k race.

All you need to begin is comfortable clothes and a pair of trainers!
