BEGINNERS 'COUCH TO 5KM' GROUPS
We regularly run a beginners 'Couch to 5km' group which aims to get new runners completing the 5km distance within an 8 week period.
We have a team of coaches who lovingly lead our C25KM group which usually meets every Thursday evening during Spring, Summer and Autumn at the Great Lines Heritage Park (ME7 1FN) from 6:30pm to 7:30pm (along with our other run groups).
The C25KM plan that we follow is the same as the NHS Live Well plan - CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO...
100's of people have completed our C25KM course since 2014 and many have experienced:
• Weight loss
• Improved mental health/sense of well-being
• Improved confidence
• New friendships
The way the C25KM plan works is that each week you have a certain amount of time spent jogging and then walking. Each week our C25KM team will run increasingly progressive sessions that involve you taking part and they will explain how long to jog and to walk for.
After the session you will be given homework to complete - This basically involves repeating the same session 2 times in the week before the next weeks session.
There is a NHS C25KM smartphone app that you can download that makes the homework much easier to engage with as it effectively coaches you through each session.
Our C25KM team love seeing beginners find their running feet and know exactly how it feels to be starting out for the first time and how intimidating it can feel.
