We run beginners groups throughout the year in various locations, you can check here to see what we have coming up. These groups are taken by qualified run leaders who will take the group through the ‘Couch to 5km’ programme in 10 weeks and if you’re up for it, you can graduate with the group by completing the nearest parkrun, where you’ll get purple support worthy of an Olympic athlete! If you want to give running a go, trust us, it’s so much easier in a group. The best bit is, it’s totally FREE but you MUST register for the group as numbers are restricted
VOLUNTEERS. We couldn’t run our sessions without the help of our volunteers. They are there to make sure people know the routes and timings and to make sure we follow our policy of “nobody gets left behind”. If you’re part of a social group and can help with the new beginners, even if you can’t commit every week, then the Run Leaders and new runners really appreciate it.
Groups starting in 2019 – Please register using the group links below, we have to restrict numbers to 50 per session for safety reasons so we may have to turn you away if you haven’t registered….if you miss the first session, don’t worry, you’ll be fine in week two.
