Walk to Run
(starts 8 January 2022)
 

There's never been a better time to chuck on a pair of trainers and head out for a run. You're not never too old, or too young or too slow to start running. This new edition course is suitable if you are new to running, returning from injury, had time off running or post baby. So what makes it 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 stronger for longer and ENJOY running through a holistic approach.

Oh and you get a qualified UKA run coach and personal trainer guiding you every step of the way.

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.

  • You don't want to run alone and would like to find running buddies.
