It is a 9 week course, suitable for anyone looking to improve their fitness through running or jogging regardless of pace or age.  Please contact Cliff Marriott on if you would like to take part and he will send you further details.

Couch to 5K Medals


You run/ walk/ jog at your own pace.  The 9 weeks is time enough for everyone to improve.  We have lots of supportive volunteers.

Not a problem, you’ll catch up.

I’ll send you out the Runner’s World programme which is based around 4 walk/ runs a week.  It’s a big ask. Do what you can.

Unfortunately we’re not insured for children. 18 and above only.

Best not to.  You might be keen, they may be less so. Give them my email, below, and they can sign up themselves.  That way I have everyone’s email and if we have to change things and/or people drop out then everyone is still in touch.

Loose comfortable clothes and trainers.  Please don’t spend loads of money on new kit.

Yes please do.

You almost certainly are and I’ll be in touch shortly but by all means do email me.

It’s about having fun and improving fitness.

Normally I reply very quickly but from 10th August to 26th August the email will be unmanned. After that I will quickly get back to you.
