COUCH TO 5K PROGRAMME
Our Couch to 5k programme has had to take a back seat during Covid. However for returning runners, we will be commencing a "Back to 5k" programme on 15th March 2021, and gradually build back up towards 5k over the coming weeks.
We hope to resume a regular beginners' Couch to 5k programme again in August 2021.
Participants will need to register their interest with us and sign up on the Spond app to each run, as we are limited to groups of 15, and need to record everyone's details for track and trace purposes.
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
