Healthy start to 2019

Make your New Year’s resolution to get fit by taking part in the University’s Couch to 5k programme!

Runners on a path

With the support of a qualified run leader, the eight-week running programme will culminate in a fun ‘graduation race’ at the Brownlee Centre Festival of Running. The sessions will help you build up your fitness and improve your running technique before taking on the race at your own pace.

This programme is suitable for everyone – from complete beginners to those returning from injury. So, take a break from your desk and get running.

What's included?

  • eight weekly running sessions in Hyde Park and surrounding areas from Wednesday 9 January to Wednesday 27 February between 12.30 and 1.30pm – meet at Cromer Terrace gym (changing facilities and showers available)
  • entry into the 5k race at the Brownlee Festival of Running on Sunday 3 March 2019; and
  • a goody bag and medal for all Brownlee Festival of Running finishers.

The cost of the programme is £20 and you can register your place here. Registration closes at noon on Tuesday 8 January.
