Due to the restrictions imposed by Coronairus-19 the 2020 Beginners Group has been suspended, we hope to resume the sessions as soon as possible and hope that people are able to maintain their activity levels where possible. We look forward to seeing you all later in the year.
Please note NEW DAY & NEW VENUE.
Starting on Monday 20th January for 16 weeks.
Meeting at St Nicholas church hall (opposite the Barnes pub)
Starting at 6.30pm get there early to register.
Pay £10 upfront for the whole course or choose to pay £1 per week.
The primary aim of the course is to build up your endurance rather than speed (although that will likely improve as a by product). Our aim is to get everyone who sticks with the course to be able to run at least 5 miles without stopping – no matter what your state of fitness at the start. We will include additional running related exercises along with recommending other runs during each week as the course develops. The last 4 sessions will be an introduction to the sort of running sessions that you would experience on a typical Club night with the Sunderland Strollers should you decide to join the Club following completion of the course.
Sunderland Strollers will be organising the East Durham 5K once again on 23 Feb, race starts 10am. This is in support of the East Durham Trust who are, in turn, supporting a range of Couch to 5K programmes across the area. It is therefore an ideal first event for many in the Strollers Beginners Group. There will be loads of the Beginners Leaders either running or marshalling so loads of support on the course. The race starts and finishes at Noses Point car park in Seaham. Entry costs £10 but we have arranged a £2.50 discount for all members of the Beginners Group. All finishers will receive a t-shirt and medal. Go here to sign up.
