Training Courses for Beginners

These are aimed at complete novices and are for anyone who would like to start running for what ever reason but are unsure what to do, how to get started or perhaps needs help with clothing, shoes or diet.

We will aim to get you to a stage where you feel confident to continue on your own, or perhaps join a club, or enter a local fun run, but mainly our aim is to enable you to enjoy your running.

The course will follow our previous successful format and consist of 8 x 1 hour sessions every Monday evening at the Advance Performance store and cost £25 for the entire eight weeks.

In addition every participant will receive a free runners training water bottle and a copy of our handy "An Introduction to Running for New Runners" booklet. Payment must be made at the time of booking by cash or cheque. Each course is limited to around 15 participants to ensure a friendly, informal session with no pressure.

If you would like to register for the course contact for an application form and return it to the address stated with full payment. All applications are acknowledged immediately to confirm receipt and a place on the course.

Courses are frequently oversubscribed and therefore early application is recommended.
