Couch to 5k programme returns to Malvern

Craig Gibbons 25th May, 2018

THE POPULAR Couch to 5k running group returns to Malvern next month.

Aimed at complete beginners of all ages, the course will start from Thursday, June 7 at Malvern Town Football Club, Langland Avenue, from 10.30am to 11.15am.

Costing £20 per person, the ten to 12-week programme was set up by Malvern Hills District Council to help build the confidence, stamina, fitness and well-being of residents.

Participants will run together every week with the support of group leaders and will be asked to complete two homework runs.

By the end of the 12 weeks, participants will be able to successfully run their first Park Run and will receive a well-earned medal at the finish line.

Rachel Vann, physical activity and well-being officer for Malvern Hills District Council, said: “We have had a lot of success with our Couch to 5k programme in the past, it is a great chance for people who might not have done any running before to build confidence and improve their health, whilst making new friends.

“As running leader, I will be on hand with our other volunteers to provide training, advice and support throughout the programme.”
