Dress code ~ As we will be running on the streets, we ask that all participants wear either hiviz or light coloured clothing/top.

Footwear ~ Wear a pair of comfortable trainers we will be running on the roads and paths round PRH, Run leaders can give personal advice on where to get specialist running trainers from.

Weather ~ We will be running every Monday, regardless of weather, with the exception of severe weather when the run leader deems it unsafe to be out running. So please dress appropriately for the weather.

Run leaders ~ All our Run Leaders are both first aid trained and qualified as a Leader in Running Fitness.

Looping ~The group will run together and no one will be left behind we ask any faster members of the group to loop at the front to the rear of the group to assist with keeping the group together

Progress ~ Each session you will notice a progression in your ability to run, by the end of the 11 weeks you will be able to complete the 5km.

What if I can’t make all sessions? ~ If you can’t make all the sessions each week do not despair, try and get out and complete a run similar to what you did in the previous session.

How many times do I have to run per week?~ What we have found is that people who run three times per week progress at a faster rate, we will organise the Monday sessions but it would good if you could try and run twice sometime between each session (parkrun on a Saturday morning is a good place to try)
