Club Beginners Group of 2021:The next Club Beginners Group of 2021 will approx start from the end of Apr or start of May 2021 (exact date will be confirmed later in the new year).
It will run weekly, teaching new runners how to warm up and run correctly and avoid injury, different running drills and exercises, ending with proper cool downs.
The group will increase its distance on a very gradual basis, through 5k until the group, alongside many other club runners, will complete a measured 10k sometime in August.
The group will be an integral part of our Monday night training session during the summer, and will be delivered by experienced coaches and run leaders.
Its open to complete novices and all we ask is that people wear suitable sports clothing and footwear and bring some water with them.
The final thing we ask is that people all enjoy themselves!
