Latest Couch to 5k graduates take Parkrun by storm

Our latest couch to 5 k course was completed in style as most people who have been taking part ran the Stretford Parkrun on 25th March.

The course has been gathering pace over the past 8 weeks, with most participants total beginners at the start. Over the weeks, they have been helped by a range of MFR volunteers to build up their running distance with all now able to run 5 km.

MFR took over the Parkrun to help celebrate our newest graduates achievements and to promote our It’s a Piece of Cake 10k race on 29th April (still open for entries!). Club member Martin Dunn put the icing on the cake (so to speak) of an amazing morning, by coming first with a new club pb! Well done everyone! More photos of the event are on our Facebook page (kindly taken by Dan Whittaker).

After the Parkrun, the graduates celebrated with a well earned glass of fizz, and we hope many will join the club and perhaps start the 5 to 10 km progression programme we will be launching shortly. Watch this space!

Our next Couch to 5 k course starts in September…
