Thursday Evening

Date: The latest Couch to 5K group started in Sept 2023

Time: 7pm

Training: Couch to 5km (C-5K) – for absolute beginners. Over a period of weeks the C-5K programme aims to encourage beginners into running. The first session is only 30 minutes consisting of 5 minutes warm up walk, 1 minute jogs intersected with 1.5 minute walks, and then a 5 minute cool down walk. By the end of the programme we aim to get you running for a whole 30 minutes/5km.

The next Couch to 5K group will start in Sept 2024. More details will be provided later.
