RUNTOGETHER - GET ME STARTED

STOP PRESS: a new Beginners Group starts on Monday 8th January 2018, alongside a '5K to 10K' programme for those looking to progress to the next level.

 

The Royton Road Runners RunTogether group meets at Royton Cricket Club on Monday evenings at 5.45pm.


The sessions last for 1 hour & are designed to help over-18s to achieve their goal...whether that is to get fit, lose weight, meet new friends, take part in a race or just to get off the couch!


We believe that running/jogging is for everyone & is most fun when shared with others. We can help if you’re a beginner or if you’ve not run for a while & want a gentle introduction. There is no minimum standard or level of experience. It’s fine to walk a bit, jog a bit, walk a bit more.


The sessions are designed around an initial 10–12 week training programme which, in addition to a weekly group run, offers advice on safety, clothing & footwear, warming-up & warming-down, stretching...plus a bit of homework.


Group leaders are fully qualified & insured by England Athletics.


The overall aim is to conclude the programme with a 5km timed run.

 

As the name suggests, it’s about helping you to get started – it really is about lacing up your trainers & taking part.


For runners who have previously run or can already run 5K there is a separate '5K to 10K option. The aim of this group is to run a 10k race/route at the end of the 10-12 week programme.


Runners who aren't already registered on the RunTogether scheme can complete an online registration form via the RunTogether website - or a paper form can be completed on the Monday night.
