Our friendly and inclusive beginner and intermediate running courses are coming back this September, led by run leader India.

We will help guide you to achieve a 5km running distance over the course of this 10 week couch to 5k training block. Or if you're not a complete beginner and want to develop your running skills instead, why not try our intermediate course which will help you progress from a 5km distance to a 10km distance.

Course Guide

  • Choose a course that will suit your style and ability. If in doubt, staff will be pleased to advise you.
  • Wear appropriate clothing and make sure your footwear is designed for the activity. 
  • As a courtesy to others and for health and safety reasons, please arrive 5 minutes before the class start time to set up. We will refuse access to anyone arriving after the class has started. The warm up is a crucial part of the session and reduces the risk of injury.
  • Drink plenty of water before, during and after the exercise.
  • Never exercise after a heavy meal. A light carbohydrate snack is ideal.  
  • Inform your instructor of any medication, injury, ante/post natal or illness that may affect your ability to exercise.
  • Never exercise when feeling unwell.


Bookings & Payments

  • Payment for courses must be received at the time of booking to ensure your place is reserved. 
  • You can pay by cheque, card or cash at reception. Once we have taken your first payment you can pay by card over the phone or ‘top up’ via the Home Portal.
  • If payment is not received for the next 10 week block by your last session then the Home Portal will automatically remove you from the course and the place will be made available to another member.


Cancellation Policy

Refunds will only be given if requested in writing before the course start date. Please see the cancellation and refund policy in reception for full details.
