Beginners' Group

Beginners Group

"This is a free ten week course to help you start running. Our trained run leaders appreciate the concerns you might have about running and joining a group. They have lots of fun ways of helping you progress, feel welcome and enjoy your running.

This group is aimed at those who are completely new to running. Maybe you are wanting to start running short distances at a leisurely pace, or maybe you just want to keep fit."


The next course starts on Wed 31st Jan 2024.

"We have held this course several times now and some of our 'graduates' fondly refer to it as a life changing experience. At the end of the course most choose to progress to joining our running club to take part in the wide range of activities that we hold.

Currently we are able to offer club membership at half price for all those who attend six beginners sessions and a further four Dashers club nights."
