Our next beginners course
The Running Course
Registration will be on Tuesday 9th January at 6.15pm.
The 10 week running course will then start the following week
Tuesday 16th January at 6.15pm.
Venue: St John’s Church Hall, Haydon Wick, SN25 1QP (next to Morrisons)
St John’s Church, Haydon Wick, SN25 1QP
The course registration costs £30.00 payable by cash or cheque only. For your fee, you will have a 10 week training plan which will take you from a non runner to continuously running 5K at a pace that is comfortable for you. You will have support from one of our helpers for the duration of the 10 week course, giving you help, encouragement and general guidance. You will also receive a training t-shirt, helpful hints and tips, a plan for stretches and free refreshments afterwards.
In addition to our ‘supported’ run on Tuesdays, we also encourage beginners to come along to our Thursday run at 6.45pm from Broome Manor Golf Club, to do one of two ‘homework’ sessions. This would be duplicating what you do on Tuesday evening. Then many of our runners/helpers/beginners use park run on Saturday morning at Lydiard Park as another session, so you’ll always be around people doing a similar thing. Many people who have done the course have made friends with others and organised their own homework session, so there’s always that option if the above isn’t suitable.
At the end of the course you will be running continuously for 5km at a pace that is comfortable for you. You will then be invited to join our main running club, the Slinn Allstars, at a discounted membership rate. Further details will be given to you about this towards the end of the beginners course. If you are already able to run 5K continuously, you won’t need to do the beginners course, just pop along to one of our club nights and introduce yourself.
It is important to come along to the registration evening as I will be giving you all the information you need regarding the course and will be able to answer any questions. It will also give you the opportunity to meet with other people who are looking to join.
I look forward to meeting you at the registration evening, and please do get in touch if you have any more questions before September.
