Beginners 'Get into Running'

Next course Starts Sat 9th September 2023 (culminating in Parkrun 21st October 2023)  

Whilst all of our groups cater for all abilities, we do appreciate that starting out running for the first time can be a daunting prospect for someone who doesn't run or might be struggling with their running fitness. If you fall into this category then our Get into Running course & schedule might be worth considering... 

Our Get into Runing course takes place over 6 or 7 weeks and are held sporadically through the year. You can sign up for the next course by clicking on here.  Sessions are held on Wednesday evenings 6pm to approx 7.00/7.10pm & Saturday mornings 8.05 to 9.15am with a third optional session to do in your own time. All group sessions are led by a team of experienced running coaches including Lee, Nicola, Paul & Ulrike.

''Thanks Lee and thank you for all your support these past 6 weeks. I literally have gone from no running to 30 min and a lot of it is down to the support of the group. I am actually looking forward to Saturdays Parkrun and ticking that final box!  Emma


''Many thanks to Lee and Nicola for great advice and encouragement. Met some fun people. Really enjoyed it''. Andrew


''I found the Get into Running training course very worthwhile as it provided me with a framework to build my endurance gradually withou feeling any pressure to do anything beyond my current ability. It provided a great opportunity to get involved with other people of a similar fitness level without feeling intimidated''. Vikki

Every session includes general & running specific warm up exercises to help improve your conditioning & mobility as well as developing your running technique. The course is also structured to build up your endurance steadily over the 6 to 7 weeks so that you can go from little or indeed no previous running to being able to run your first 5km.

*All sign-ups will receive a free LMR branded running tee-shirt.
*Join a supportive group with other like-minded individuals starting at the same point.
*Enjoy a shared goal and camaraderie amongst the group.
*Receive help and guidance every step of the way from our experienced team of runners and coaches via both our group sessions & a closed group community on a private facebook group.
*As well as the twice weekly coach led sessions with an optional third session set for in your own time (many previous groups arranged to meet to do this together).

Our course is open to both men and women and will take you from no running or limited running to being able to run 5km (occasionally other similar distanes) over a period of 6-7 weeks.  If you are someone who runs already and able to run 5k but would just like to join others for training then you might want to consider one of our other weekly group sessions. If however you are someone starting out from stratch or you are finding running for any length of time a challenge and would like to be part of a group that is purely made up of people in the same position as you, then our Get into Running course is likely to be the best option.
