Couch to 5k

Perfect for anyone new to running.

  • Booking advisable

If you're tempted to give running a go, but haven't been sure where to start or quite able to find the motivation, this could be the group for you. Over 10 weekly sessions, we'll get you up off the couch and hitting 5k. We'll be taking routes and setting a pace to suit all abilities, making the most of the beautiful coastal setting of The Leas and Whitburn Coastal Park. All sessions are led by our qualified run leader, on hand to offer advice and encouragement.
