The beginners group couch to 5K is a 10 week programme for either complete beginners or those returning to running after a long gap.  By the end of the programme you will be able to run 5k.

Each weekly session is led by a Dragons Running Club run leader. Dragons is a small and friendly Sale-based running club. We are  registered with England Athletics and our qualified run leaders have  an England Athletics Leadership in Running Fitness licence.

You don’t need any previous running experience – just enthusiasm and a pair of running shoes!
