Have you ever wanted to be able to run? Does being able to exercise for FREE anytime, anywhere appeal? Does running just seem a bit too hard? Have you struggled to find a group to join due to timing being difficult?
Run4Life is organising a 9 week running course aimed at complete beginners. We start with alternating 60 seconds jogging with walking. This group brings together like-minded people to make the journey together over the weeks to completing being able to run continuously for 30 minutes!!
Sessions start at 7.30pm, giving you time to get back from work/ put the kids to bed first.
Aged 14 plus, so feel free to bring your teenager and do the course together!!
Starts Monday12th September, running until Monday 7th November 2016
The group meet inside Hengrove Park Leisure Centre
The sessions last an hour, we start with a warm-up and some mobilisation to get ready to start the session, which will be a combination of running and walking. As the weeks progress the run times become longer and the walk times reduce. We end with a cool down and a stretch. At the end of the course the group will take part in a local 5k together. Feel free to ask your leader any questions at any time. You will be provided with a running plan, and will need to aim to do 2 more run-walks a week to help you get to your goal. Why not meet up with one of your new running buddies and tackle it together?
If you have a holiday planned, don't worry just take your trainers and the plan and you can do this on holiday and keep up with the group.
You will be given access to our friendly Run4Life Bristol Facebook group - a closed supportive community for all past and present course members.
So sign up today, and tell your friends. All you need is a pair of trainers!!
This course is being offered for FREE by Bristol City Council ;-)
