Couch to 5k - 2024

Couch to 5K Course 2024 – Book Now!

Starts 30th April

We are delighted to announce that our couch to 5k entry form is now open. Have you wanted to start running but don’t know where to start? Maybe you don't quite have the confidence or motivation to get out running by yourself? Maybe you're seeking a way to improve fitness, mental health
wellbeing and lifestyle?  Well, here’s the answer………

This gentle 10 week course will guide you through the very popular Couch
to 5km programme, with some slight tweaks and our expertise thrown in.
Each session will last an hour including a WARMUP, cool down and rest
periods. The focus will be on mobility, fun and supporting each other
over the 10 weeks, no matter what your previous experience may be.

This will be our 4th year of running this course, achieving graduation of over 95% of attendees who signed up each year - many of whom have continued their running and achieved 10k's since and beyond.  Many had previously tried C25K under their own steam but not completed, hopefully an indication to you that our formula and doing this as part of a larger group definitely works!!

Our group will be starting on the 30th April 2024. You will attend two sessions with us each week on Tuesday and Thursdays 6:30pm to 7:30pm for 10 weeks (with an additional 'homework' session for you to complete at the weekends) and will guide you to being able to run 5k non-stop. 

Your graduation run will be on Sunday 7th July 2024. 

The cost is just £40 for the 10 weeks and upon graduation you will receive a certificate, Club running T-shirt and a year’s membership to East Grinstead Runners.

All runners will be supported by our team of Run Leaders throughout the
10 weeks who will be on hand to advise, support and encourage every step
of the way.  We will also invite along some of our previous C25K'ers so they can share their experience with you and help you see
the results.  

Before you start should you have any concerns about previous/existing
injuries or your general health, please consult your GP for advice on
your specific circumstances.
