An influx of volunteers has enabled a raft of new Couch to 5k programmes to start in early November around South Birmingham. This news coincides with the introduction of two new Great Run Local events in Ley Hill Park and Selly Oak Park.

Couch to 5k programmes provide a week-by-week, step-by-step introduction to running for any absolute beginners who fancy a FUN, FREE and FRIENDLY activity in a welcoming and encouraging environment. In the 9 week schedule, groups led by qualified and approachable volunteers will progress so that, by the end of the programme, they are able to run further than they’d ever imagined! Entry to the courses is in the first THREE weeks and is as follows:

Ley Hill Park – Tuesdays 9.30-10.30 – Starts 10th November 2015, entry also possible on 17th and 25th November.

Manor Farm Park – Wednesdays 9.30-10.30 – Starts 11th November 2015, entry also possible on 18th and 26th November.

West Heath Park – Fridays 9.30-10.30 – Starts 13th November 2015, entry also possible on 20th and 27th November.

Cofton Park – Sundays 9.30-10.30 – Starts 15th November 2015, entry also possible on 22nd and 29th November.
Great Run Locals are the most relaxed, sociable and friendly running events you could possibly find! With an emphasis on participation as opposed to beating your personal best, these events are tailored for those of you who simply want to try out running as a social activity. Give it a go – we’re sure you’ll love it! Our two new events are launching on the following dates:
Selly Oak Park – Wednesday 18th November 2015

Ley Hill Park – Saturday 28th November 2015.

Don’t forget – all our events are guaranteed to be FREE, FUN and FRIENDLY. What could be better? See you there!
