Beginners Group

Our next Beginners’ Course started on Tuesday 20 April and will run for 7 weeks – the course is full and we are not accepting any more applications. The last session will be on Tuesday 1 June. The aim is to get everyone fit for running 5 km when parkrun returns on 5 June. There are several parkruns close by – in Stratford Park itself (a very hilly course) and flat runs in Stonehouse and Kingsway (Gloucester).

The course is designed for adults who want to start running or for existing runners who, for a range of reasons, have taken a break and want to start again. It is based in and around Stratford Park in Stroud. Each week the group will meet at 5:45 pm in front of the Museum in the Park. Each session will last 45 minutes.
