‘From Couch to 5k’ running course runs for the 10th time

It started as a small experiment almost six years ago, when Bridport Runners launched their first ‘From Couch to 5k’. This year, the Bridport based running club will hold the 10th edition of their popular six weeks’ training program which will get every participant fit to run 5 kilometres (about 3 miles) without stopping – whether they had any or no experience in running before. Over the years, more than 90 women and men have completed the course, and many have continued running. The new training program will start Wednesday, 24th of April (four days before the London Marathon), from 5:45 to 7:00 pm at the Bridport Football Club car park; costs are, once more, £12. Training sessions will be held every consecutive Wednesday night for six weeks and will be led by Bridport Runners’ qualified coaches. To take part, please contact Brian Shelley (tel. 01308 459942) beforehand or just turn up to the training on the first evening.
