Learn to Run

Beginner's running course

Aimed at total beginners our learn to run course is ideal for those who have always wanted to start running but never felt they were fit enough, fast enough or strong enough. If you've never run before, getting back into running or just want to get fit and meet other runners, this is the perfect way to start.

Follow the couch to 5k programme with the help of a qualified instructor who will guide you each week in a supportive group environment where no one gets left behind.
