"I've never done a coached running class before and Jemma has been a wonderful instructor." Meera, fitandhappy runner

Mixed-Level Running Groups

It doesn't matter if you've never run before or think you hate it, our coach Jemma will get you going in no time. She's known to make even hill runs fun.

Suitable for both beginner and intermediate runners

Choose if you are running for 3-5k or 5-10k. Each week everyone will be working on the same drills and skills but at different intensities.

It's a coached running programme. It's not just a social run. You'll learn how to improve speed, stamina and technique.
