The friendly club that welcomes runners of all abilities

Calling all would-be, could-be and should-be runners! This year we are running the popular Couch to 5K (C25K) programme again, starting on Tuesday 6 September.

Each runner who completes the training will be able to transition easily into the regular club running groups. There are two club sessions per week at 6:30pm on Tuesday and Thursday meeting at the pavilion in the park. The C25K plan also requires a 3rd session each week which is done in your own time alone, or with any of your new friends from the club.

Our friendly coaches will guide you through the programme and enable you to improve your health and fitness both physically and emotionally.

The training sessions are free, but all runners will need to become a member of the club which is just £25 and can be done through the website by clicking the join link at the top of the page.

If you have any questions, or would like more information, see the website or email us at
