*After following the booking link you will need to register on ClubPal our club management system. You will then be given the option to purchase our Beginners pass.
All attendees will require a high viz reflective bib. If you don't have one these are available in our club store here (which you can access after registering). Any orders will be given out at the first session in January.
Running however safely organised, carries a certain amount of risk. All activities are voluntary and undertaken at your own risk. If you have a pre-existing medical condition that you think may place you at an increased risk when running please seek medical advice before signing up. If you're new to, or significantly increasing your level of, exercise you may also wish to seek medical advice.
What our beginners say...
"I joined beginners to get back into running after a long time off. With such a friendly bunch I went on to join as a member and have continued improving my running"
Hana - Beginners 2023
"I joined beginners to begin building some consistent training habits. Holding myself to account so that I could improve my health. What I found was a group of friends who I like to meet and socialise with while enjoying a common activity"
