Couch to 5K
Exercise is a great way to enhance your mental well-being and after this year we all need it at the start of 2021!
Do you want to meet new people, share experiences and be part of a group with similar goals?
Do you feel the need to exercise but want advice and support to help?
Our courses are designed for absolute beginners, so whether you’ve never run before, or if you want to get back into being more active, Couch to 5K is an easy way of getting your body and mind more healthy.
Starting with a mix of running and walking to gradually build up your fitness and stamina, over a nine week professionally-coached course you will become able and confident to run five kilometres.
Many graduates from local Couch to 5k groups go on to join local running groups - including parkrun - and continue a new healthier lifestyle. Over the last few years we have helped to develop many Run Leaders who are now part of the scheme.
