Beginners 0-5K Programme

Our beginners 0-to-5K programme costs £10and is designed for who cannot (yet) run 5K without stopping. This programme is suitable for anyone who is new to running or returning to running after a break. If you can already run 5K, please do not register for Beginners - Instead, see the section What if I can already run 5K below.

Getting you to 5K

This 8 to 10 week programme is specifically designed to get you running a 5K distance without stopping. It is similar to the NHS Couch-to-5K programme, but with our own enhancements. It is normal for us to start week-1 running at a pace of between a 12 minute to 14 minute mile.

During this current covid pandemic, we are limited to running in groups of 6 including running leaders. This means we have only 5 places on each beginners group which will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Getting you beyond 5K

Once you've completed the 5K beginners programme, we hope you will become a fully paid up member of our Mornington Chasers. There are usually plenty of runs and paces on offer and we encourage everyone in the programme to keep running together to get to 10K and beyond (whatever your goal).

Your £10 Beginners fee is redeemable against full membership (meaning we offer you a 10 discount) but not refundable.

What if I can already run 5K?

If you can already run 5km, then please do not join the beginners course - join us for one of our standard Tuesday Runs instead. Our runs vary in pace and distance and there's usually something for everyone. If you're unsure, please just contact our beginner's running leader at beginners@chaser.me.uk or to apply for temporary membership at £5 for one month, contact membership@chaser.me.uk.
