Beginners course

Want to run but lack confidence or worried about fitness? Our 8 week Couch to 5K programme will help you overcome barriers to running.

Next programme starts: Wednesday 5th June 2019 at 7pm

You can sign up until Friday 14th June and catch up with the rest of the group. After this we will close until the next session and start a waiting list. 

Cost: Free for members

Couch to 5K is a successful nationwide programme which begins with gentle walking, then introduces a combination of walk and jog sessions, steadily increasing the distance as your confidence and fitness grows.

You will run at your own pace with the support of a qualified leader and the encouragement of other LGBTQ+ peers. No previous experience is required. All we ask is that you are medically fit and willing to try. The cost is free for members, however, you are able to attend the first three sessions for free to see if the course is appropriate for you.

Membership for the club costs £15. This will give you access to both the Beginner’s Programme and all other club activities and runs until April 2020. We offer reduced or waived fees for people who are unemployed, on low incomes, students or have other circumstances where money would prevent participation on a discretionary basis. Please see your joining email or contact in confidence if this applies to you.
