Summer '19 'Couch to 5K' Beginners Running Course-Mangotsfield, Mangotsfield School, Tuesday, 23. July 2019

Do you want to see a new, fitter you for the summer of 2019? Do you want to improve your health and well-being? 
If so, why not join us on one of our ‘Couch to 5K’ beginners running courses?
This beginner friendly ‘C25K’ lasts 9 weeks and will take you from running 1 minute followed by 1 ½ minutes walking (eight times) in the week one, to being able to complete a 5km parkrun by the end of the course.
This event takes place on a gravel running track which is super kind to your joints and if you have any worries about running in public, it’s tucked away out of sight.
For those that complete the course in 9 weeks you'll go on to do a ‘Graduation’ parkrun. 
What about the coaches on the course? Our run leaders are people just like you, who’ve grown to love running and want to share their passion. Lots of them got here by the same route and realise how important a super friendly sociable group is.
But don’t just take our word, here’s some feedback from past participants…….
“The friends we’d meet, crazy run leaders……..” Katie.
“They were so motivational and supportive that even though I worried if I could do it, I wanted to turn up! Actually I really wish I could do it all over again going into the winter.” Tamsin.
“Coming along each week for the friendship and fun we were having, the hard work was worth every moment.” Abbe.
And if that wasn't enough, there's a closed facebook group where you can share your questions, interact with other members, either on the course or previous graduates, plus keep posted with tips and encouragement from our run leaders.
Our courses are priced at £10 – for those who do less than 30 minutes of exercise a week & £20 for everyone else. That starts at just over £1 a week. What’s more, we even give you a FREE technical running t-shirt when you complete the course! If you did one of our courses in the past and your running has lapsed for whatever reason, you’re welcome back, if it was more than 6 months since you finished your course.
If you're still not sure, we do offer session one as a FREE taster session. If you prefer to try before you buy, search again on Eventbrite for ‘Summer Couch to 5K beginners running courses - Free Taster sessions - Active in Life’. Book on the appropriate course there.
So what are you waiting for, sign up now and see you a fitter you over the summer holidays! 

I've already signed up for the FREE taster session here on the same day. Do I need to sign up again?
It depends! You can either go to the first session and confirm it's for you (we're confident it will be!) then sign up or you can sign up here for the full 9-week course in advance. The advantage of doing that is some of our courses do sell out, due to the ratio of coaches to participants, so that way it secures your place.  
Do I have to go to all the sessions?
We hope you make it to all the sessions, but it's not unusual for people to miss the odd one as they are late from work, on holiday or have another commitment. If you do miss a session that's fine, just do the session at your convenience with the help of our preferred app.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
There is parking on site and the area is serviced by the local bus route network.
Do I just run once a week?
The coached session is once a week but you'll need to do two other runs, which are pretty similar, over the week. Lots of our participants meet up to do these together, as well as enjoying a cheeky coffee afterwards (!) and make friendships out of it as an added bonus!
