Congratulations to the 23 participants who took part in our first Beginners’ Running Course over 8 weeks in April and May. Despite the strong winds, they all wore huge smiles during their final 5k timed run along the sea front on 31st May 2016 – their finisher’s medal was well deserved. The course leaders were very impressed with how much the group members supported each other through the weeks and are really pleased that the majority have stayed on. They are now enjoying the intermediate sessions on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm which will build up their strength and stamina to run up to 10k. The club is looking forward to having another beginners course in Spring 2017, which will be advertised in the new year.
