Lace up your running shoes for Couch 2 5k

Correspondent 29th Sep, 2021

STRATFORD Athletic Club will be starting a new nine-week Couch 2 5k programme on Monday (October 4).

It will start at 6.30pm at Stratford High School Track.

There will be three 30-minute sessions each week, on Monday and Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. If you can’t make all three, you can do some of the programme at your own convenience.

It is totally free and everyone is welcome. It is a brilliant way to get fit, to start or restart running. It is motivating to be part of a group of people with the same goal.

Past Couch 2 5k graduates have gone on to join the club and do great things or have just enjoyed meeting like-minded people for a friendly jog.

If you want to join the group, come to the track at 6.30 on Monday or contact
