Description

Starting with a fun group warm up, runners are placed into groups depending on ability (ranging from complete beginners to 5k runners).

A run or walk session is then completed along a set 2.5k route.

The session includes teaching points on how to:

  • run
  • warm up
  • cool down
  • stretch

We offer optional homework for our runners, which if completed, means runners can progress to the next level.

If runners attend every session and complete all homework, we expect them to complete their first 5k in 9 weeks.
