We are delighted to offer a range of running programmes that will suit lots of different abilities.

All of our small group running sessions comply with Government guidelines and England Athletics.

They are limited to twelve participants and will adhere to social distancing guidelines, as well as actively encourage regular hand washing. They are professionally led and coached by our Physical Activity and Well Being Officer, Rachel Nicholls who is a UKA England Athletics Leader in Running Fitness.

Couch to 5km

Our Couch to 5km programme is aimed at complete beginners, so if you’ve got to week five on the NHS Couch to 5km programme and felt like it’s been too much of a jump, or even haven’t tried running before then this programme is perfect for you.

It’s 12 weeks long and aims to gradually build you up to running for 40 mins. The programme is tailored to your own level of ability too so you can progress at your own pace. 

The course costs just £30

Our next course dates are:

Tuesday 11 May, 6.30pm - 7.30pm from Hanley Swan
