Event description

Description

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 12 week running course aimed at complete beginners (Intro session plus 11 week course).

Is this something that you would like to do but are a bit worried that you can't? Then come and try our Taster session without committing to any more sessions, then if you like it you can come and join us the next week for the rest of the course. ;-)

Our first session we will be doing a gentle 'Intro' into the course, then the actual week 1 starts the following week, alternating 60 seconds jogging with walking. The course runs for 11 weeks taking you to running for 35 minutes/ close to 5k. This group brings together like-minded people to make the journey together over the weeks to completing being able to run continuously for 35 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!!

***You can sign up for just the Taster Session on 19th April and then transfer onto the course or the whole course - your choice

****Starts Thursday 19th April, running until Thursday 12th July 2018. (12 weeks in total). There will be a break for Half-term - Thursday 31st May

*****The group meet at the gate on the corner of Fishponds Road by the traffic lights opposite the petrol station

******Why is this course 12 weeks? We have found that if we make more of a gradual increase in running each week people enjoy the journey more, and become stronger and a better runner. Our course also takes you to 35 minutes running, which if you are interested in running a 5k is closer to most new runners running times than the traditional C25k that reaches 30 minutes.

********Each week we provide you with a different exercise to try which will help strengthen key running muscles and help to prevent injury.

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 may 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 (homeworks) 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. (when the course starts)

So sign up today, and tell your friends. All you need is a pair of trainers!!

This course is being run by Bristol City Council's running initiative Run4Life Bristol and is FREE.

Registration information will be kept on a secure database and will be used in a statistical format for monitoring and evaluation purposes only. You may be contacted for feedback to help with course improvement/ our project evaluators. Medical information, name and emergency contact details will be passed onto our Run Leader.
