Athena Beginners Group (Green- 2017)
Mon, 17 Apr 2017, 19:00 – Fri, 9 Jun 2017, 22:00 BST
Athena is a women's running group in St Albans! In partnership with St Albans Half Marathon the Athena Project has been designed to provide a community where ladies can feel comfortable to meet up and motivate one another to take small steps together towards their running goals!
So is the beginners group for me?
These groups are designed for ladies who have little or no experience running and want a regular group of ladies they can meet with to learn to run 5K comfortably.
We have had many ladies complete our 0-5K programme of all shapes, ages and abilities. We believe everyone can do it if they have the correct attitude towards it and by the end many fall in love with running.
We don't put a pressure on speed either, as long as your moving comfortably that is most important!
What does it include?
The groups have a set start date and run for 8 weeks.
They are instructed by a qualified UKA Run Leader and we are known for having a really friendly and sociable environment as we want you to enjoy the experience of learning to run.
All groups meet at Abbey View Track Building and we provide somewhere safe to lock away any valuables.
All sessions start with a warm up and high viz bibs are provided.
All ladies on beginners groups are welcome to also attend our Athena Social Run Nights which are held every Monday (7.15pm meet for 7.30pm run start) and Wednesday (7pm meet for 7.15pm run start).
This is great for meeting up with the other ladies to do one of your homework runs.
The groups do require 2 x homework runs a week in order to reach our goal as a group.
These will be emailed to you weekly.
When, Where & How Much?
All groups meet at Abbey View Track Building (Verulamium Park) and we provide somewhere safe to lock away any valuables.
We run on the roads around Verulamium Park and in Summer nights around the park too.
Groups are charged at a one off registration fee of £37 plus small booking fee.
We hope you can come and join us and see if you get the running bug they all talk about! If you have any queries or concerns please message us on facebook or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to help :)
Hope to meet you soon!
