Couch to 5K project runs again!
15th May 2015
United in the Community are running their successful Couch to 5k challenge again, starting on Thursday 25th June for eight weeks to help people get more active and turn them in to running champs.
“Our last Couch to 5k challenge was a great success, and it’s great because it is suitable for everyone regardless of their experience. The sessions are tailored to suit all levels of experience, and will involve training over eight weeks, including group-jogging sessions and individual runs. It’s a great way to get fit and healthy, help you lose weight and also train you to be able to run a marathon,” says Imogen Dawson, Sports Development Officer.
United in the Community are encouraging more people to get active with the project, which is part of their Active Pilgrims scheme that offers free and low-cost sport sessions in partnership with Boston United Football Club, The Football Conference Trust, Boston Borough Council and Sport England. Lincolnshire Sport and This Girl Can are also supporting the project for a second time.
Anyone over the age of 16 is welcome no matter what their running ability, with the 8-week challenge costing just £10 with exit routes at the end of the programme if runners wish to carry on.
