Malvern Buzzards Running Club encourages a positive start to 2022 by launching their FREE Take Flight Couch to 5k program at the beginning of January, with the aim of getting beginners to attend five weeks of sessions.
Attendees joined the sessions by clicking into the “run together” app, allowing our qualified run leaders to track who had signed up, there safety information and of course to assign the attendees their “homework”.
The sessions were around 40 minutes including warm up and cool down, starting with walk run sessions, gradually building up the distance over the 5 weeks to finally run 5k on the last take flight.
We are pleased to report that we had 23 attend the first sessions, with only 2 dropping out meaning that we have 21 graduates from the program and 17 that have subsequently showed an interest in joining our club to continue their running.
We are also excited to announce that we have received funding from England Athletics to repeat the program two more time for free this year, if you or someone you know is interested in getting involved, please contact us – TakeFlight@malvernbuzzards.uk
