Once you graduate on week 10 you move into our Pink group where we will continue to help you enjoy and progress your running. You now would only need to pay £2 a week.

To prebook please email us stating if you want to join the NEW YEAR, SPRING or AUTUMN course at CHELTENHAM or TEWKESBURY.

The other ladies

We understand it can be daunting joining a new group or taking up a new but as a large proportion of the ladies that already run with us have completed one of our beginners courses they completely understand those fears and will be friendly and welcoming and support you with extra help, advice and motivation. We all had to start running once – now its your turn.

Fitness level to start the course

While we want to be able to help the absolute beginner get into running we do ask that you are able to walk briskly for 30 mins before signing up. And you DONT NEED TO LOOSE WEIGHT before joining us – we’ll welcome you just the way you are now.

Reasons to join the course

You will be running with other ladies, making new friends and getting fitter. Not only have our Beginners Courses helped ladies start running, they have also lost weight, got fitter and made new friends. The courses offer the perfect introduction to increasing your exercise levels and making your health a higher priority.  You don’t need to be fit or slim to join one of our courses – just willing to turn up each week and do your best.

Your leaders

Tuition will be from one or more of our fully qualified and insured UK Athletics / Run England Leaders. Please see the Leaders section on our website for more information about our LADY RUNNERS LEADERS who will be helping you start your running journey.
