Couch to 5k Beginners Running Course

It’s back!
Our beginners running courses are always popular and we are pleased to announce the dates for the next Couch to 5k.
We have qualified leaders in running and fitness, along with other running club volunteers to turn you into a runner in just ten weeks. The course is designed for those who have never run before and is a lot of fun, as you discover what you can do with some guidance and encouragement along the way.   Over ten weeks you will progress at your pace with the aim of running 5k at the end of the course.   There will be a fun 5k run around Crediton at the end of the course, with a medal to all finishers and plenty of support from the club along the way.

Priority will be given to those who have not previously (in the last two years) had a place on one of our beginners courses. We hope that after the course you will chose to stay with us and run at our club sessions, as you discover how much fun running can be and what a great bunch of people run with CRN!

CRN believes in fun, fitness and friendship through running, and we very much look forward to welcoming you to running and to our club through this course.
