    18:45-19:30 Mondays and ThursdaysCarterton Community Centre

    A 10 week total beginner's course to help you get your confidence and ability up and running! With UK Athletics 'Leadership in Running' qualified instructors, the course will be 10 weeks at around 45 minutes on a Thursday evening 6.45pm, AND/OR a Mon eve, 6.45pm, meeting at the Community Centre on Shilton Park. We recommend that you jog twice per week, so if you can attend both days, that is great, but if you can only get to one, then we recommend you get out again sometime during the week. The course is flexible too, so you can swap from Thu one week to Mon the next if you are away or work shifts - the Mon is a repeat of the previous Thu.

    Many of you will have looked at or tried the Couch to 5k programme - it's an awesome programme (and we loosely follow it), but there is no substitute for running with people of the same ability as you, getting some information on breathing techniques, footfall, stretching, pacing, clothing and trainers. You will get outstanding encouragement and support from our leaders (and from each other), plus great general running advice too. We have found that the group ethos REALLY helps, and we have a private Facebook group especially for course members. For those who want to continue running with us after the course, we have a follow-on skills course and 4 running groups per week; the Mon & Thu evening sessions are perfect for those just off the beginner's course to help you continue to improve, learn new training techniques and build your confidence to complete a 5km (or more!). However, there is no obligation to keep running with us - you'll have enough confidence to do it on your own after the course.

    The cost of the Walk 2 Jog course is £60, payable before the course starts.
