Walk to Run


There's never been a better time to chuck on a pair of trainers and head out for a run. Suitable if you are new to running, returning from injury, had time off running or post baby. So what makes this course any different to all the other couch to 5k plans out there? We focus on easy running aiming to build a strong foundation, improve aerobic fitness coupled with specific strengthening needed to run strong for longer and ENJOY running through a holistic approach. Oh and you get a qualified run coach guiding you every step of the way.

I've enjoyed running since school age, competing in events ranging from 100m track up to marathon as well as road and cross country racing at club level. I'm a qualified and experienced British Athletics Run Coach and Run Leader coaching at Striders of Croydon and Oxted Ladies Run Club.

This course is for you if...

  • You want to start running but don't know where to start.

  • You've had a baby and want to get back to running safely.

  • You are returning from injury.

  • You've had some time out from running.

I've had ladies complete the SHE ACTIVE running program who hated running at school, never considered themselves a runner until now who are still running strong and it's become a way of life. Here's what previous Walk to Run ladies have to say about the program:

Amanda is an excellent coach who helps you to enjoy running and instills confidence - I would recommend her to anyone starting running or restarting running after a break.
