Are you thinking about starting running? We’ve seen a large number of friends and comrades start running since the lockdown began, those who’ve seen gyms close or who are just trying to keep fit and protect their mental health. All you need to get started is a pair of trainers but it can be hard finding the motivation to begin and that’s where we want to help. After the success of our first virtual race last weekend, we’re organising a virtual 5k in ten weeks time, which means if you’ve never run before and are up for taking part, you can start the NHS’s nine week couch to 5k training plan and be able to take part.
Our virtual 5k will be on Saturday 25 July.
We’re also going to organise another virtual race and we want to encourage everybody who took part in the last one to take part again and increase the distance they’re doing. To give everybody who did 10ks on Saturday time to do a twelve week half marathon training plan, our next virtual race will be on Saturday 15 August.
