8 WEEK BEGINNER COURSE
Only £80 for NEF members & £100 for non-members
The beginner programme is designed to get you running 5k within 8 weeks. The walk/run/walk/run system gets your body used to running and, with a bit of practice in between sessions, you'll soon find you're doing a lot more running than walking.
TECHNIQUE analysis and tuition is a key part of the course and sessions are designed to give you a running style that will keep you running injury-free. This is YOU giving yourself the time to become a runner.
"It would never have been possible for me to reach this level of running without the well directed teaching and the great peer support on this course" Catherine
