Couch to 5K
Fieldhead Campus, Fieldhead Hospital, Ouchthorpe Lane, Wakefield, WF1 3SP
Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)
Over the course of 9 weeks we will take you from total running beginner through to completing a 5km Parkrun event. We will follow the NHS Couch to 5K scheme to progress steadily and develop both running technique and fitness. This course is a fun introduction to running where the experienced and leaders will provide support and encouragement throughout to help you on your running journey.
Who knows, you might be tackling half marathons next (some of our previous participants have gone on to do this!).
Please note: You will need to dress in comfortable clothes and trainers appropriate for exercising in, and ensure you bring a bottle of water. During this course, you will be expected to participate for 9 weeks, and will need to run three times a week. At least one of your running sessions will need to be with your Recovery College group, happening on Tuesdays and Thursdays from the date below. Note that we will have a week off for the October half term holidays.
