Beginners Course

This 8 week 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. PLEASE NOTE THIS COURSE IS NOW FULL.

The course is based in and around Stratford Park in Stroud.  Each week the group will meet in front of the Museum in the Park: the training takes place there or close by.  The post code for the Museum is GL4 4AF.  What3Words – buying.motel.sublet.

The course will run on Tuesdays from 6:30 pm to 7:15 pm, starting on 9 April and ending on 28 May.  The aim is for everyone to run 5 km at the last session, which will be a 5 km run on the roads close to Stratford Park.  We hope that, if you are not already a member, you will join Cotswold Allrunners once the course is complete.  If you do join, the course fee of £8 is subtracted from the club’s annual subscription of £20.

You will be advised how to pay once your application is accepted.

The link to the application form has been removed as the course is now full – the form asks for your contact details and is also an opportunity for you to tell us about any injuries or weaknesses that you may be carrying.

Making the best of the course – we know that everyone is busy, but to make the best of this course and prepare you for further running, it’s a good idea to plan your week so that you run three times (including the course) and hopefully do at least 30 minutes other exercise – such as walking briskly – on other days.

Once you have applied and paid your fee, all you need to do is turn up on 9 April in comfortable clothing and shoes that you can run in.
