Please listen carefully to them and remember that they are in charge for your safety. We encourage you to wear a 'tag' with emergency contact details on your trainers just in case you take a tumble.
3-4 mile Beginners Group
This group is for beginners and is for runners who are still at the run/walk stage of their running. It is a great introduction for anyone new to running and as long as you can shuffle along for a bit you are most welcome. You will surprise yourself at what you can achieve! We have many runners who started in this group who now run marathons.
