Newport Beginners Running Group - Starts Again
Would you like to start running or do you know somebody who would like to?
Lliswerry Runners & Caerleon Running Club have joined forces to be able to offer a "Couch to 5k" programme which builds up to completing a 5km (3 miles) run gently over 9 weeks.
The present course will complete their programme soon. WELL DONE TO EVERYBODY!
A NEW GROUP will start at 9am on 13th September at Tredegar House as part of the weekly "parkrun". We will start with gentle walking & one or two gentle jogs. In addition to this regaular Saturday session there will be sessions at 6pm on Tuesdays at the Civic Centre (lower car park) & 6pm on Thursdays at Caerleon College.
It's free of charge. We just want to get more people running and enjoying the health benefits, personal confidence and fun that running in company offers. The 9 week programme will be coached by UK Athletics Qualified Leaders in Running Fiteness and Coaches in Running Fitness, who are always happy to give you advice about training, shoes, clothing etc.
Please don't worry about your standard of fitness. We will take you through a programme which is approved by the NHS. However, if you have existing medical conditions and are unsure if you are able to join, then please obtain advice from your GP to be on the safe side.
So please use the "Contact Form" under the "Contact Us" tab above and we can let you know more details or add you to our list of beginners.
