Couch-To-5K Courses

Are you looking to improve your fitness or start running? Then why not join one of our brilliant Couch-To-5K beginners running courses!

These ever popular courses fill up quickly due to their inclusive and welcoming nature. No previous experience is required and over 9 weeks we will take you in session one from running for 60 seconds to being able to run continuously for 30 minutes by week nine.

Couch-To-5k is sociable and beginner friendly with all the group sharing the journey. As well as the coached sessions we encourage our groups to meet up and do their "homework" sessions together, this usually means there's another chance to catch up over a coffee! There’s also a closed Facebook group where you can pick up tips, ask questions and generally chat with your and other courses about how it’s going! Run throughout the year starting on designated dates.

Contact us for information on the next course or see below for the most recent/upcoming courses.

"I think having done cross-country at school and absolutely loathed it with every fibre of my being. If you had told me that I would enjoy running and see it as a hobby, I would not have believed 'me'. That’s the main thing, it got me back into sport"

"I think that it gave me belief that I could actually exercise. And also it made me more aware of my body, I’ve got horrific posture, but I have to say I’ve been working on it every since then, the benefits I’ve really felt. And now I’ve taken up yoga – its so lush and I do pilates. It has made me much more aware of looking after my body and protecting it."
