Walk to Jog courses

We offer 10-week Walk to Jog courses designed to help you progress your fitness at a steady rate, in a fun and social environment.

The course costs £10.00, which includes a free t-shirt awarded at the end of the course.

A brief outline:

  • week 1 consists of a moderately paced riverside walk covering a distance of around 3.5k (2 miles)
  • by week 10 you will be able to jog 5k (3.2 miles) without needing to rest
  • our experienced leaders also include a range of challenges for more advanced joggers

The great thing about this course is no matter what level you're starting from, you won't get left behind!

Note: No new courses are currently planned, but watch this space for details of new courses in the future.
