RUNTOGETHER - GET ME STARTED
A new Beginners Group (Couch to 5k) will start on Monday 13th May 2019.
An Improvers Group (5k to 10k) is cuurently taking place on Thursday evenings.
The Royton Road Runners RunTogether group meets at Royton Cricket Club on Monday and Thursday 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 or 10k timed run.
As the name suggests, it’s about helping you to get started and/or to improve – 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.
