To help you get started we have designed a 0-5k planning plan ideal for those wanting get in to running for 2017
The run / walk group is for people who are just finding their feet out with running. It takes place every Monday evening at 6:30pm at Tregorrick Rugby Club.
Each session will be 30 minutes plus the warm up and cool down. It will be out and back routes or a 30 minute loop on some nights. There will be a coach at the front, middle and the back to make sure everyone is ok. We have changed to doing it this way as it gives you the choice of how much you run or walk so you are not restricted.
The front runners will be given points to loop back to the back marker to keep everyone as a group. This is essential and must be done by all runners.
