Malvern Hills District Council is delivering a Couch to 5km programme aiming to get people from the couch and gradually work up to running 5km over the 12 week programme.   

The national initiative is for anyone of any age and it’s designed for real beginners.  The course aims to help build your running confidence, stamina, fitness and well-being, as well as being social.  Our style is fun, social and informal so that everyone feels comfortable and supported with clear progression each week.  

There are 12 weeks in the programme and each week you will do one run with us and two "homework" runs.  Our fully qualified leader in running fitness, Rachel Vann, will provide free training, advice and support throughout.  You will also gain on-going support from each other.

At the end of the 12 weeks we will run the Worcester Woods Park Run together.

The course costs just £25.
