Introduction to Club Running course

26 May 2017 - By Becky Grimwood

New 6 week running course starting soon!

  • Are you keen to run with Witham Running Club but lacking confidence to come along?
  • Have you started your own training by completing a Couch to 5k or running at park run?
  • Keen to make the next step up in distance?
  • Do you want to know how to safely bridge the gap between 5k and a club run (around 5.5miles)?

If the answer to these is ‘Yes!’ then we might have the programme for you.

Starting Tuesday 6th June, a 6 week programme begins, drawn up and led by a UKA Coach in Running Fitness.

The programme includes:

  • A coached run on Tuesday nights, gradually increasing in distance from 3.5 miles (just over 5k). See dates below for the venues.
  • Coached warm ups and cool downs for Tues sessions, which you can apply in your own workouts
  • Guidance on additional workouts to complete independently over each week
  • Tips and guidance on running specific skills and techniques with a different focus each week
  • Two Thursday evening ‘effort sessions’ in week 5 and 6 to introduce you to different workout styles.
  • No obligation to join as a member after the course (but you would be welcomed if you do decide to!)

Course cost – £10 to be paid online before the start of the course.
(Course cost will be taken off of membership, should you decide to join up as a member during or after the course)
