Introductory Course for New Runners

This spring and summer we will be holding more of the very successful six week Introductory Courses for New Runners.

The next session starts July 3rd at 7 pm from Thornbury Leisure Centre (meet in the top car park)

Whatever your current ability we hope that by the end of the 6 week course you will be able to run/walk 5km and if you wish, may take part in the new Thornbury parkrun. 

All ages welcome but athletes under 18 must be accompanied by a running adult. 

Please tell your friends and family.

  • Six 60 minute sessions to take you from 0 to 5Km
  • Discover the fun of running
  • Enjoy the benefits of getting fit
  • Run with others for support
  • Safe running in a group
  • Sessions run by a qualified coach
  • Advice on diet and nutrition
  • Help with injury prevention
  • Try first 2 sessions for free

Contact if you want to take part, or simply come along on the night and ask.  But Hurry, numbers are limited to a maximum of 20 people.

The first two session of the Beginners Course are free of any charge. Should you wish to continue, a charge of £10 is payable for the remainder of the six week course.  

At the end of the course there is no obligation to join the club.  However we hope you will have enjoyed the sessions and got the running bug, so we will invite you to join the club at an additional cost of £15 (normal annual membership is £25, with no weekly charge).

Last year a great many of the new runners joined the club and are now regularly running 10km and beyond!

For runners of all standards
