BRJ Run & Triathlon Club are putting on a programme for people new to running to take up the sport and to progress to being able to run 5km, 10km or further. The programme is for people aged 16 and upwards.The programme starts with a free presentation at Thongsley Fields Junior School which includes an optional active session at the end. This is free and without obligation. Dress appropriately if intending to take part in the optional active session.

For those who decide to join the programme the first coached run will be on 20th January from the Sapley Square area and coached runs will continue every Monday through to 14th September (except bank holidays). People joining the programme will join the BRJ Run & Tri Club on a 15-month membership (to the end of March 2021) at a cost of £25.

To make the programme effective participants will repeat the run twice before the next week’s coached run, participants usually buddy up with others to run in small groups on days and times convenient to them.

The aim is to get you able to take part in the free weekly 5k Parkrun at Hinchingbrooke Park by Easter and able to run 10k, or for about 60 minutes, by mid-September.

See our website for more details.
