Start out running C25K

We run a Couch to 5k program each autumn (2021 dates tbc) for those who want to get into running, but don’t know where to start.

No more excuses. Today is the day. Lets get out there and run a 5k!

Want to join our club but don’t have the confidence or running ability just yet then this course could be the perfect stepping stone!

Week by week, step by step, our Couch to 5k (C25k) program will get you into running and ready to run your 5k challenge.

This programme is for beginners – no running experience necessary. Our experienced coaches will get you there, all we ask for is your commitment to the 8 week course leading upto the  Stretford Parkrun.

Most of our course graduates then join and run with the club, and we have programmes to progress onto greater distances if that’s what you want to do next.

We use an App  to help you throughout the weeks on the course and keep you on track. We’ll also show you how to warm up, general running techniques, how to stretch and cool down, as well as getting you round the beauty of Longford Park.

We also have a dedicated C25k facebook group page which you’re welcome to request to join
