Beginners Group

Our next Beginners’ Course starts on Tuesday 20 April and runs for 7 weeks. 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.

In order to comply with Covid-19 guidance from England Athletics the maximum group size will be 11, making a group of 12 when the coach is included. If more than 11 runners express firm interest, we will do our best to find an additional coach.

The cost, if you are not already a club member, is £7, payable in advance. You will be advised how to pay once your application is accepted.
