A massive achievement for new running recruits
09 April 2015
Members of Run England Group J and M Running recently finished one of their Learn to Run courses with a 5K parkrun in Haywards Heath.
The aim of the course is to achieve a 5K run at the end of the ten weeks and the course also included a talk from local physio, Alex, on avoiding injury by not doing too much too soon.
The Clair parkrun in Sussex is a notoriously hilly course but all the group completed it and celebrated afterwards.
Run England's Sussex Running Activator Marion Hemsworth commented, "It's a massive achievement."
The next beginner course starts on Monday 15th April with over 40 applicants - it must be the sunshine persuading everyone to get out there and start running!
If you are inspired why not see if there is a group holding a beginners' course near you. Just go to our Groupfinder page at www.runengland.org/groups.
