Enjoying Running and Progressing Fast!

Enjoying running much more than expected and really surprised how quickly I have been able to run longer distances over 5k. Looking forward to getting up to 10k.

Graduated from Couch to 5k Group to Non-stop Runner in Week 2!

I joined the clubs C25K programme as someone who had never been running. In a matter of weeks was running in the 8kph non-stop group with some great new friends! The club is excellent for self improvement & socialising

A Social Couch to 5k Programme with Loads of Guidance

I am currently doing the couch to 5k, I love the social side of it, having others to motivate me and also getting all the information every week about any problems I have, and what the week plan is.
