Learn to Run 5km and Learn to Run 10km

You’ve never run before or have not run for a very long time? This course is for you helping you to build your distance and confidence.

Run Fit

This class uses resistance band and body weight exercises to help you get stronger for running and is combined with short two – four minute running intervals to help you either build your distance or speed, depending on what you want to work on. Fun, inclusive, supportive. (Combine with Learn to Run 5km to get two sessions per week absolutely free).

Run Rehab

If you regularly suffer from injuries, are recovering from one or always suffer from niggles, then this course is for you. Six or eight week courses that focus on building strength and stability in the core, gluteal muscles and legs. We use resistance bands, TRX, weights and incorporate yoga for runners stretches and myofascial release. Six or eight week blocks, we do not accept drop ins on these courses.

Yoga for Runners

Suitable for all levels, including total beginners, our yoga classes are specifically aimed at those who run/cycle or are active. Mat based most of the class involves using props to help you maximise the release of your muscles.

It means that you may run something like 200m, 400m, 600m, and then 400m, 200m with a rest in between. We challenge you to work outside your comfort zone in order to improve your overall speed.  Each session is different and we also work on on the mental techniques to help you become comfortable with feeling uncomfortable. Perfect if you are aiming for a personal best on a parkrun, 10km, half marathon or marathon.

Half Marathon Training: Building Distance

Our weekend running courses all start at 5km and build up week by week. We specialise in helping all levels of runners from first time entrants to races to experienced runners achieve their endurance goal with beautiful guided and supported trail runs with our qualified and very experienced running coaches.
