Introductory Course for New Runners

Twice a year, Spring & Autumn, we run an  Introductory Courses for New Runners.

All abilities  are welcome but athletes must be 18 or over. Whatever your current ability we hope that by the end of the course you will be able to run/walk 5km and, if you wish, be in a position to take part in a parkrun.

The next session starting on Wednesday 4th September is FULL.

“I have honestly really enjoyed the course, have met some great people and, due to the support of the club,  have started to run which I never dreamed possible!  So thank you very much for all you have done for me!” 

“I’m hugely appreciative of the time, effort and support in providing the course and I’m really pleased to have made such good progress in a relatively short space of time. Most of all, I’ve really enjoyed it and will definite try to get to the 5k mark in the future.”

“A big thank you to you guys at TRC – I have gone from your introduction course to running Berkeley / Bradley Stoke / Thornbury 10k’s and now 4.5 stone lighter I may not be able to get to club nights but I do appreciate the support you have given me on my personal journey
