Beginners Running: Autumn Season

November 17, 2017 at 9:30
Posted by Rachael Woolston

Do you want to learn to run without injury, with great technique but without the pressure of having to achieve a certain distance? If so, our NEW running seasons are for you.

Support and fun in numbers. With the benefit of personalised coaching

Our focus on each six week term is about building your confidence through strength and technique exercises, along with running to build your endurance. It doesn’t matter what your fitness level, running background or current level of fitness, these courses are designed to work with each of you personally, while being in a group environment so that it’s much more fun and supportive.

We have over eight years of helping women get fit to run, who have then gone on to run marathons and longer. Whatever your dream goal, just to get out and run for some ‘me’ time, or you harbour a secret dream of one day, running a marathon, these running seasons are for you.

You can join us for one season, or continue with us through to the Spring Term 2018. Can’t make this term? That’s fine, join us the next term. What happens in each season will depend on those taking part and will adapt to help each individual achieve their goals. For if there is one thing we know, what starts as your goal at the beginning of one course, can often change by the next – we’ll help you achieve it.

We meet and end at Preston Park Chalet Cafe.

Are you ready?


Each term of six weeks costs £50.

Purchase two for £90 or three for £135

Strength for Runners

Strength work

Strength work

If you are a runner, strength and conditioning should be as essential to you training as running. It will help you to become a better, more efficient runner and most importantly, help you to prevent injuries. What you spend on strength and conditioning now – particularly if taking on the Brighton Half Marathon or Marathon, will save you lots of money in physio treatments later on.

I’ve been running now for over 17 years, and have done 10 marathons in the last five years, countless half marathons, trail races and long endurance events and have developed this 30 minute class to provide the essential strength work that your body needs. You need to be doing at least three sessions per week but you can use some of these exercises to do your own at home 15 minute version, we’ll show you how.

There are two price options for this event, either book for a minimum of four classes or the full six. WE don’t allow drop ins on this course because we work on a personal level to regress/progress each exercise according to each individual. Plus, to get strong, you need to be consistent which is not possible when you do the occasional class.

The class is strictly limited to 8 people.
