Buckley Runners Couch to 5K 2024

Tuesday 16th April – Saturday 15th June

Fancy joining us?  🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️

If you’ve ever thought about lacing up those trainers and hitting the pavement, now’s the perfect time to start your running journey. Whether you’re a complete beginner or returning after a break, come and join us to get you off the couch and gradually (back) into running.  Let us help you make running become an uplifting part of your routine, benefiting both your mental and physical well-being.

Last year, we had more than 25 runners complete their C25K journey, graduating at Wepre parkrun at the end of the 9-week programme.  Many of them have continued running with us and have gone onto setting themselves and achieving further personal run challenges.  This could be you this year!!

Some quotes from last year’s Couch to 5K participants:

“I really enjoyed last night, it had a real buzz about it.”

“What a lovely supportive group this is thanks to the volunteers for being so encouraging it’s great x”

“As promised, just completed my run whilst in [holiday destination]…ill admit I missed a few, as I forgot my trainers. Then yesterday we went to the shopping centre and bought some. so off I went this morning. It was well worth it to end on the beach for a swim.”

“Did my homework run today whilst impersonating a runner 😂! Chip time of [time]! 😀”

“When I’ve completed the C25K, the next goal is 10k! I’ve never done a 10k before so that will be a challenge!”

“I asked [name] if I could run in with him on the very last day of his challenge on [date]. Think we could get some of our group to either join or meet him at the end of the route to celebrate his achievement?”

“In the last year since the C25k I have lost a stone and a half, made new friends, Tuesday and Thursday nights and a parkrun Saturday have changed my life”
