Couch to 5k

BTR Road Runners’ “Couch to 5k” programme

Some of the BTR Road Runners

The Road Runners are encouaging the local community to get active during 2020 by launching a “Couch to 5k” programme, starting in February.

The aim of the programme is to support those who are beginners to running or those keen to get back into the sport.

Those who sign up for the programme will be given a personal training pan to assist them in the challenge, and will be encouraged to run twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday, with a third run planned for the weekend.

The first session will start at 6.30pm on Tuesday 18th February, meeting at Whitt’s End Bar on Market Street, Hoylake. The final run of the programme will be the BTR Medal Muddle 5K fun run at 11am on Easter Monday 13 April at River Park in Bromborough.

The programme is free, however participants are being encouraged to make a £1 donation per session which will go to good causes. Funds raised will be split between Claire House Children’s Hospice and Leukaemia Care.

So come along on the 18th, we look forward to seeing you – or pop along any Tuesday or Thursday evening to join in our runs!
