Who is it for?
It follows the principles of the Couch-to-5K program which as its name suggests is for complete beginners or people that are coming back to running after an extended break.
How does it work?
We will take you through a walk-run program that gradually reduces the walk element and increase the run element. As an example, in week one it will be 1 minute of running followed by 90 seconds of walking, repeated 8 times.
It will help you slowly build up your ability and confidence with the aim of getting you running 5k non-stop at our graduation event.
How frequently do I need to run?
The program is based on 3 sessions a week, one of which you will do with us and the other following it in your own time (maybe in a little group with some of the other beginners).
Hang on you just said I need to run for a minute in week 1!?
It’s not about speed, you just need to run as much as you can for that minute 😊
How do I know what to do when I am doing it on my own?
We’ll make sure you have all the information you need at the end of the first session.
Does it work?
Definitely. Many of the club members have followed one of the C25K programs.
When does it start?
Wednesday 2nd May
When and Where is it on?
Wednesday evenings from 7-8pm for 10 weeks. We meet at Creasy Park Community Football Centre.
How much does it cost?
£10 to be paid upfront when booking your place
