    Taking up running can seem like a scary prospect, especially if you feel out of shape or unfit.

    But did you know that regular running can help reduce the risk of chronic illnesses, boost your mood and keep your weight under control?

    This event is for you whether you have run before or want to get started. Any level is welcome.

    Its non-scary event and the goal is to get you running with some friendly encouragement round the meadows twice nonstop. You will be amazed how easy it is to do and how quickly you will get there and when you do…

    Congratulations, you can now run 5k!

    If you need a little bit more help click the link below for the NHS guide called “The Couch to 5K plan” its designed to get you off the couch and gradually work you up to running 5K or running for half an hour, in just nine weeks.

    Link: www.nhs.uk/Livewell/c25k/Pages/get-running-with-couch-to-5k.aspx Consult G.P. before beginning any exercise.

    Once you have cracked the 5k goal stick with us and encourage others. See you in the park!

    We always go for a coffee and a chat too after the Sunday run.
