Couch to 5K

Running programme for complete beginners

Couch to 5K is a 10 week running programme suitable for everyone. It's a great way to gradually build up your fitness from absolute beginner to being capable of running a 5K race!

Over the course of the 10 sessions, you will gradually build up your fitness. At the end, there will be the opportunity to take part in a full 5K. There's no pressure though - this is completely optional!

We are also running Boot Camp sessions for beginners alongside the Couch to 5K sessions. These are a gentle introduction to the boot camp sessions we run each week and are a great starting point for anyone new to fitness boot camps. This is a boot camp without the 'boot'!

'Because it’s such a nice, relaxed atmosphere, you’re not afraid to give it your best go: you don’t feel like anyone is watching or judging you and there is no pressure. It makes a difference to have good people taking the class. Happy crew, very friendly!'  Anne, Couch to 5K
