Couch to 5K – Autumn 2023
Axe Valley Runners are starting a Couch to 5K running course on Wednesday 30th August at 18:30, meeting at Fisherman’s Gap (by the roundabout) on Seaton seafront.
It is a 9 week course, suitable for anyone looking to improve their fitness through running or jogging regardless of pace or age. The plan is that you’re welcome to come and give it a go for a couple of sessions and if it’s for you then please sign up via LoveAdmin.
The cost will be £5 for the course with the option to subsequently join AVR. This enables you to run with the club on various nights at a variety of paces suitable for all throughout the week.
Please contact Cliff Marriott on email@example.com if you would like to take part and he will send you further details.
Is it suitable for me?
You run/ walk/ jog at your own pace. The 9 weeks is time enough for everyone to improve. We have lots of supportive volunteers.
What if I miss a week?
Not a problem, you’ll catch up.
Should I be running outside of Wednesday’s nights?
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.
Is it suitable for children?
Unfortunately we’re not insured for children. 18 and above only.
Can I sign my friends up?
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.
What should I wear?
Loose comfortable clothes and trainers. Please don’t spend loads of money on new kit.
I’ve started one of these before but had to pull out, can I sign up again?
Yes please do.
I missed out on the last one but think I’m on a waiting list?
You almost certainly are and I’ll be in touch shortly but by all means do email me.
Do I need to be a serious runner?
It’s about having fun and improving fitness.
I’ve emailed and not heard back.
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.
