Couch to 5k returns

A Broseley running group is revisiting its successful Couch to 5k programme for spring. Broseley Joggers will be meeting at the town library car park every Tuesday and Thursday at 6.30pm from Tuesday 10 April. A UK Athletics-qualified run leader will put runners through their paces over a 10-week course, which starts gradually and leads to participants running a 5km distance.

Run leader David Warrington explains, “Quite literally you can start as a couch potato who hasn’t run since those dreaded school PE lessons and in just 10 weeks you can be running for 30 minutes. Several of last year’s graduates will be on hand to offer support, guidance and encouragement but beware – it can be addictive!

“Most of our ‘graduates’ have continued to run regularly long after completion, continuing with our weekly club runs and taking part in events such as Parkrun or even enjoying races of all distances from 5K to half marathons!”
