RUNTOGETHER - GET ME STARTED
A new Beginners Group started on Monday 17th September 2018.
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.
