NEW: Couch to 5k for Beginners

Taking up running can seem like a scary prospect. Many people don’t know where to start and joining a new running club can seem daunting even for those who already run.

To try and encourage more beginners and to create a safe and inclusive environment for those of all running abilities we are running a Couch to 5k (C25K) series alongside our usual 630pm Thursday club runs starting 3rd November 2022.

Couch to 5K is a free running plan for absolute beginners. The plan involves 3 runs a week (a mix of running and walking to gradually build up your fitness and stamina) with a day of rest in between and a different schedule for each of the 9 weeks. Week 1 involves running for just a minute at a time, creating realistic expectations and making the challenge feel achievable right from the start.

Each week, one of your runs will be on Thursday with a beginners run leader from our club. You then complete the other two sessions in your own time – we encourage you to link up with others from the group who are doing the same training runs, especially if you need to run in the evenings now the nights are drawing in.

To ‘graduate’ to the full 5k at the end of the series we will find a local parkrun (ideally with a cafe for some celebratory cake!). We hope you will then join our running club to continue your fitness journey – we have shorter options on all of our regular routes and our members include a variety of runners with mixed abilities. All are welcome.

To sign up for the C25K series just drop us a message on facebook so we know to expect you. Please also spread the word, the more the merrier!

We meet in the Killamarsh Active car park (formerly Killamarsh Leisure Centre, Stanley St, S21 1EL) on Thursday’s at 615 for a 630 departure. Your run leader will be Steve Crownshaw.
