Beginners 0-5K Programme

Our Beginners programme runs between April and December each year. 2021 courses have finished. We're taking registrations for 2022.

Our Beginners 0-to-5K Programme is designed for those who cannot currently run 5K without stopping. This programme is suitable for anyone who is either new to running or returning to running after a break. It is not suitable for anyone who can run already run 5K.

The Beginners 0-to-5K Programme is limited to 20 places per term and places are allocated via an official waitlist. Please register for the waitlist below. Once you have registered, our Beginners Leader will contact you to confirm your place on the list and the next available course.

Getting you to 5K

This 8-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. The course is inclusive and our volunteer leaders support runners of all paces, but we usually start at a gentle 12 minute to 14 minute mile while we work out your needs.

When and where?

Tuesday evenings from 7pm at Talacre Centre for a 7:15 sharp start

What if I can already run 5K?

If you can already run 5km, then please do not sign up to the beginners waitlist - join us for one of our standard Tuesday Runs instead.
