Couch to 5k - Berkhamsted

We have trained hundreds of people, aged from 17 to 70, achieve their goal of going from couch to 5k.

Our beginners course is aimed at the total beginner or those returning to running after a long time away.

Every penny of the course is donated to the Hospice of St Francis.

Unlike most couch to 5k courses we also include fun games to help with fitness, as well as build up the amount of time running. The course is over 10 weeks, including 9 coached weeks, and we gradually increase the time we run for. The emphasis is on supporting each other and having fun. To allow us to reach our goal over this short space of time we set two homework runs a week, including for half term, to help you get to 5k at the end of the course.  At the end of the course everyone does the Aylesbury parkrun.
