Organiser's Description

Wye Valley Runners Beginners Group 4

Meeting Place: Hereford Leisure Centre, Holmer Rd, Hereford HR4 9UD

Times: Thursday 25 April  then every Thursday for 8 weeks

 6:15 pm for 6:30 pm start

Training Group for: Beginners and those wishing to start afresh. The course caters for adults aged 18 years and over.

The course is £25 and is for eight weeks and includes one year's free membership to Wye Valley Runners (normally £25)

With an emphasis on providing a friendly supportive atmosphere and encouraging each runner to develop at their own pace, this eight-week programme will mark the start of the rest of your running journey.

We will run alongside you and offer encouragement.  Led by experienced coach and club member Kate Green with a support team of experienced runners from the club, you can learn from their knowledge, what motivates them, and what helped and what didn’t when they were starting out. We were all beginners once - we know it can be daunting at first - but we know the benefits are too good not to share.

When you complete the beginner's programme we will reward you with free membership for one year with Wye Valley Runners - normally costing £25 a year.    Wye Valley Runners are a relaxed, friendly, small club that welcomes runners of all abilities - the ideal place to continue your running journey.

Why run?

Many of us run for health reasons, and running has great benefits for both physical and mental health. It’s a great stress buster and a good way of maintaining a healthy weight. It also offers time out from our busy lives where we can enjoy being outside. 

Running is like most things in life, you get out of it what you put in. There are no shortcuts to improvement, but if you can build running into your routine you will soon start to see the benefits.  The beginner's programme should be effective if you can commit to running and stick to the suggestions in the plan.

Health issues or injuries 

It’s important that we know about anything likely to impact your running. 

Please have a word with Kate your run leader if you are concerned about anything at all. 

Any health conditions – please check out with your GP before starting on the beginners' group.

What to wear 

Running is great because you don’t need to wear anything special and you don’t need any equipment other than a decent pair of shoes and a sports bra for women. Once you improve and are running for longer periods you will find you don’t need to wear as many clothes, but as a beginner, you may want to wear a couple of layers which will keep you warm while you are running/walking - particularly as this first session of the programme starts in late October and runs until start of winter.

Who will I be running with?

The group limit is 20 max   - this means everyone gets to know each other, we can keep it personal and you get to make new friends with similar interests and ambitions.
