On Monday 4th October we will start our latest Couch to 5k programme.

It’s how the Fit Like Joggers first began. And it remains fundamental to our ethos to provide an opportunity to start your running journey with us.

This is a 9 week programme with the aim of going out three times a week

It starts at just 60 seconds and builds up as the weeks goes on.

It doesn’t matter what your current level of fitness is. The programme is aimed at easing you in very gently.

Hundreds of people have been through C25k and can guarantee that it works if you stick in.

We will go out on Monday and Wednesday at 7pm and on Friday at 6am, meeting in front of the kitchen showroom on the corner of Great Western Road and Forest Avenue.

It doesn’t matter if you can’t make all the runs. Come when you can, and perhaps do the others on your own, using the app.

It doesn’t cost you anything either. Just wear comfortable clothes and trainers.

Remember it will be dark so bright clothing is recommended

We need to manage group numbers so please sign up to the Spond App which lists all the runs. It’s really easy to use.

Here’s a link to the NHS C25k app that you can download if you are doing any of the runs yourself.

The NHS Couch to 5k programme is designed for beginners to gradually build up their running ability, so they can eventually run 5km without stopping

The 9-week running plan has been tried and tested by thousands of new runners

When we start a new course, we begin with just 60 seconds of running, which gradually builds up over nine weeks 

We meet on Monday and Wednesday evening, and Friday morning.  We don't expect you to make them all, but we encourage you to come to as many as you can
